What is reversible data hiding? The original cover can be losslessly restored after the embedded information is extracted. Introduction message stego cover data embedding data extraction & cover restoration cover message 2

What is reversible data hiding? The original cover can be losslessly restored after the embedded information is extracted. Why is reversible data hiding needed? In some applications, even any degradation of the original cover is not allowed, such as medical imagery, military imagery and law forensics. Introduction Where is reversible data hiding applied? Media annotation; integrity authentication... 3

How to do reversible data hiding? Type-I: Binary feature sequence, generic compression method (e.g., arithmetic coder); Type-II: Integer operations: Difference Expansion (DE) or Histogram Shifting (HS) specific compression manner for the histogram Introduction 4

Type-I: Basic model [Kalker] d modifications Embedding rate: Distortion: How to maximize embedding rate under any given distortion? A rate-distortion problem 5

Introduction Theoretical upper bound [Kalker] 6

Recursive Code construction [Kalker] Key idea: the marked cover can be used to reconstruct the cover Introduction 7

Observation I Not only the marked cover can be used to reconstruct the cover, but also the reconstructed cover can help to extract message. Two observations 8

9 Observation II

The maximum capacity is achieved at D=p 0 1/2; When D p 0 1/2, the optimal embedding manner is that only 0s are allowed to be changed. (Corollary 1 of Theorem 2, [Kalker]) Our strategy: Only embed data into 0s and skip 1s; At the decoder side, the embedding positions can be recognized with the help of reconstructed cover. Two observations 10

RZL coding (reverse zero-run length) [Wong] How to embed data into all-zero cover Our method: improve RZL by the idea of ZZW construction A construction consists of two layers: The outer layer: only embed one bit; The inner layer: when embedding bit 1 in the outer layer, embed another k bits with RZL; otherwise skip 2 k zeros. Message is divided into disjoint segments of k bits, each of which is converted to a integer d [0,2 k -1]; skip d zeros in the cover, and flip the (d+1)th zero. 11

Example: k = 2 How to embed data into all-zero cover 12
