It is a kind of techniques that generally used to present the content of a website different to search engine and that differs from its user end view. It is accomplished by use of User-Agent HTTP or IP address that requests the pages to appear in that way. If a spider arrives to a website the server side scripts uses a technique that delivers the spider a different version of that website.

This is a black hat technique basically use to deceive the search engines spiders about how do you locate and embed the non textual containers.

Experts say it as a spamdexing technique that is tricky to bring out a higher ranking for the website.
It is somehow called as doorway technique too.

These days cloacking is no more working any longer. It has been a good technique, though. It is really an amazing technique to have the two version available of the same webpage, one is something different to a user and other is different to the SE's.

Cloaking is a search engine optimization (SEO) technique in which the content presented to the search engine spider is different from that presented to the user's browser. This is done by delivering content based on the IP addresses or the User-Agent HTTP header of the user requesting the page.
 
Cloaking is tricking Google so it sees different content (eg more/differently optimized) on your website than search engines do.

Cloaking is something that is very unlikely to happen by accident, so it's not something you need to figure out how to avoid.

Cloaking is a search engine optimization technique in which the content is different from users to search engine crawlers for better indexing. The purpose of cloaking is sometimes to deceive search engine so they display the page when it would not otherwise be displayed.
