Data Hiding Fundamentals and Applications

Content Security in Digital Multimedia

Multimedia technologies are becoming more sophisticated, enabling the Internet to accommodate a rapidly growing audience with a full range of services and efficient delivery methods. Although the Internet now puts communication, education, commerce and socialization at our finger tips, its rapid growth has raised some weighty security concerns with respect to multimedia content. The owners of this content face enormous challenges in safeguarding their intellectual property, while still exploiting the Internet as an important resource for commerce. Data Hiding Fundamentals and Applications focuses on the theory and state-of-the-art applications of content security and data hiding in digital multimedia. One of the pillars of content security solutions is the imperceptible insertion of information into multimedia data for security purposes; the idea is that this inserted information will allow detection of unauthorized usage.

Audience
Engineers, computer scientists, and students doing research in multimedia signal processing, content security, and digital rights management (DRM) systems.

Reviews

  • “ ... this book is recommended to computer programming professionals, technical intelligence personnel, and select students in the hard sciences. It is also recommended to data-hiding professionals who wish to expand or refresh their skills in this vital and rapidly expanding field.”
    - Dan Bergevin of Catfield International, Security Management

    “This is a readable book and of importance to those with a special interest in the growing number of multimediea technologies now being applied to the internet services. Cyberneticians and systemists will find the book of interest and those who are directly involved with these online activities need to read it.”
    - D.M. Hutton, Kybernetes, Volume 34, Issue 7+8, 2005

    "With Data Hiding Fundamentals and Applications, the three authors seek to fill a broad gap in the literature of digital multimedia security. Steganography, the art of hiding information in multimedia content, is discussed in meticulous detail in various contexts. But if you don’t savor complex equations and block diagrams, this book isn’t for you... Because of its high level of information, this book is recommended to computer programming professionals, technical intelligence personnel, and select students in the hard sciences. It is also recommended to data-hiding professionals who wish to expand or refresh their skills in this vital and rapidly expanding field."--Security Management
