Information hiding is an evolving and challenging research field. Lately, a novel information hiding method that utilizes the original cover without modification to transmit secret messages has raised attention of the scholars. This method, coverless information hiding, can resist various kinds of existing steganalysis techniques due to its property. In terms of text steganography, coverless information hiding methods have made headway, most of which aim at Chinese steganography. Thus, this paper proposes a coverless steganography based on English, using the tag based protocol to make the secret communication possible. Experimental results reveal that the proposed method has decent success rate and hiding capacity.
