Can you give a little more information about your limits here?
I doubt that you can guarantee a completely non-interceptable message with our current technology. You can, however, obfuscate the message carrier so
that one would not think to look there.
If, for example, you arranged to have wads of gum stuck outside the Museum of Natural Science in a specific pattern, and your message recipient would
know how to interpret that pattern, it would be very unlikely that anyone would even imagine that that was a code of some sort.
This security problem, like a lot now, seems to come down to social engineering. This is a concept that hackers have used for years to get passwords
and access to computer systems without using any technology other than e-mail or a telephone. In the reverse, it's used to mask what you want hidden
in such a way that nobody'd think to look for it there. Cut a message in your son's hair. Shave in a specifically uneven, but not in an
unbelieveable, way. Buy a specific number of commercial spots on the evening news, where the commercials themselves are unimportant but the order is.
Hide the message by hiding the fact that there's a message at all.
