Abstract:

HidInImage enables the encryption and hiding of secret information (text or images) inside images using Steganography techniques. Secret information is hidden imperceptibly in that it cannot be detected by the human eye. Our innovative Steganograpy-based hiding solution plays a vital role in securing digital media content. It can authenticate imagery and enhance security. The steganography research field is proven and widely deployed - billions of watermarked content objects and hundreds of millions of watermark-enabled applications or devices exist worldwide. Users include major record labels, movie studios, broadcasters, advertisers, financial institutions and governmental document issuing agencies.
