comment KDFs for symmetric encryption master key & serial number
@RichieFrame: Might as well use HKDF-SHA512, so you can say you're using a real standardized KDF. (HKDF is basically just a standardized answer to "How do I use HMAC as a KDF?")

Hi, Manish, and welcome to Crypto Stack Exchange. I took a quick look at your scheme, and it looks pretty clever. On the other hand (and with no fault on your part implied), your answer did make me start to wonder if this question might not be a bit too broad for a Q&A site like this one; while your project seems interesting enough, we'd really rather not see dozens of other people following your example and also coming here to post links to their own steganography tools. Thus, I've decided to vote to close this question; we'll see if other people here agree.
