For many years, Information Hiding has captured the imagination of researchers. Digital watermarking and steganography protect information, conceal secrets or are used as core primitives in digital rights management schemes. Steganalysis and forensics pose important challenges to investigators; and privacy techniques try to hide relational information such as the actors' identities in anonymous communication systems. These and other topic share the notion that security is defined by the difficulty to make (or avoid) inference on certain properties of host data, which therefore has to be well understood and modeled.
Current research themes include:
Anonymity and privacyCovert/subliminal channelsDigital rights managementFingerprinting and embedding codes Multimedia and document securityMultimedia forensics and counter forensicsNovel applications of information hidingOther data hiding domains (e.g. text, software, etc.)Security metrics for information hidingSteganography and steganalysisTheoretical aspects of information hiding and detectionWatermarking (algorithms, security, attacks)
Continuing a successful series that brought together experts in these closely linked research areas, the 12th edition of Information Hiding will be held in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
The 13th Information Hiding Conference will be held in Prague, Czech Republic. For more information click here!!
