Open Access Synchronizing Embedding Changes in Side-Informed Steganography

Historically, two different strategies have been proposed for improving steganographic security by allowing each cover element to be modified by +1 or −1 with unequal probabilities: side-informed steganography and methods that cluster the polarity of neighboring changes. In the first strategy, the sender typically uses the knowledge of quantization errors when developing / processing the cover before embedding. In the latter, embedding on disjoint sub-lattices employs heuristic rules to increase the probability that the polarities of neighboring changes align. In this paper, we propose a method for combining both strategies and experimentally show an improvement in empirical security for several types of side information on two datasets when steganalyzing with rich models as well as convolutional neural networks.

  • For more than 30 years, the Electronic Imaging Symposium has been serving those in the broad community - from academia and industry - who work on imaging science and digital technologies. The breadth of the Symposium covers the entire imaging science ecosystem, from capture (sensors, camera) through image processing (image quality, color and appearance) to how we and our surrogate machines see and interpret images. Applications covered include augmented reality, autonomous vehicles, machine vision, data analysis, digital and mobile photography, security, virtual reality, and human vision. IS&T began sole sponsorship of the meeting in 2016. All papers presented at EIs 20+ conferences are open access.

    Please note: For purposes of its Digital Library content, IS&T defines Open Access as papers that will be downloadable in their entirety for free in perpetuity. Copyright restrictions on papers vary; see individual paper for details.
