15th Annual IEEE International Conference and Workshop on the Engineering of Computer Based Systems (ecbs 2008)
Biometric Inspired Digital Image Steganography
March 31-April 04

Steganography is defined as the science of hiding or embedding “data” in a transmission medium. Its ultimate objectives, which are undetectability, robustness (i.e., against image processing and other attacks) and capacity of the hidden data (i.e., how much data we can hide in the carrier file), are the main factors that distinguish it from other “sisters-in science” techniques, namely watermarking and Cryptography. This paper provides an overview of well known Steganography methods. It identifies current research problems in this area and discusses how our current research approach could solve some of these problems. We propose using human skin tone detection in colour images to form an adaptive context for an edge operator which will provide an excellent secure location for data hiding.
