Reversible data embedding theory has marked a new epoch for data hiding and information security. Being reversible, the original data and the embedded data should be completely restored. Difference expansion transform is a remarkable breakthrough in reversible data-hiding schemes. The difference expansion method achieves high embedding capacity and keeps(More)
This paper presents an efficient JPEG steganography method based on heuristic optimization and BCH syndrome coding. The proposed heuristic optimization technique significantly decreases total distortion by inserting and removing AC coefficients 1 or -1 in the most appropriate positions. The implemented data hiding technique is based on structured BCH(More)
In this paper, we propose a risk-sensitive hinge loss function-based cognitive ensemble of extreme learning machine (ELM) classifiers for JPEG steganalysis. ELM is a single hidden-layer feed-forward network that chooses the input parameters randomly and estimates the output weights analytically. For steganalysis, we have extracted 548-dimensional merge(More)
An innocuous visual secret sharing scheme over natural images is presented in this paper. Secret sharing scheme allows a group of participants to share a secret (i.e., an image) among them. In case of(k, n) visual cryptography any group of k qualified participants among n (where k les n) can reconstruct the secret. This paper presents (n, n) visual(More)
In this article, a new Bose-Chaudhuri-Hochquenghem (BCH)-based data hiding scheme for JPEG steganography is presented. Traditional data hiding approaches hide data into each block, where all the blocks are not overlapping each other. However, in the proposed method, two consecutive blocks can be overlapped to form a combined block which is larger than a(More)
This paper presents an improved data hiding technique based on BCH (<i>n</i>,<i>k</i>,<i>t</i> ) coding. The proposed embedder hides data into a block of input data by modifying some coefficients in the block in order to null the syndrome. The proposed embedder can hide data with less computational time and less storage capacity compared to the existing(More)
