The RLE algorithm [8] is also a lossless data compression technique and is considered to be the simplest in that the repeated occurrences of a character are replaced by the length of the character followed by the character itself.
Lossless data compression can mitigate some of the throughput decreases caused by TCP/IP packet loss.
There are limits to how much lossless data compression can compress and increase the payload of a TCP/IP data packet.
Some data protection network vendors have developed very clever lossless data compression schemes that overcome the limits of TCP/IP packets.
This implementation can increase throughput by up to fifteen times more than standard lossless data compression. FTP test results at a very large insurance company (see Figure) demonstrated compression rates up to approximately 10 times the bandwidth available and 187 times the native TCP throughput.
Lossless data compression can increase packet payload so that it mitigates throughput decreases from TCP/IP packet loss.

Since then, there have been several studies of information hiding on lossless data compression [2][4][5][8].
We first illustrate the flow of normal lossless data compression without data embedding in Fig.1.
Now, we illustrate the flow of lossless data compression with data embedding in Fig.
