- We can order this
This book intends to provide a comprehensive overview on different aspects of mechanisms and techniques for information security. It is written for students, researchers, and professionals studying in the field of multimedia security and steganography. Multimedia security and steganography is especially relevant due to the global scale of digital multimedia and the rapid growth of the Internet. Digital watermarking technology can be used to guarantee authenticity and can be applied as proof that the content has not been altered since insertion. Updated techniques and advances in watermarking are explored in this new edition. The combinational spatial and frequency domains watermarking technique provides a new concept of enlarging the embedding capacity of watermarks. The genetic algorithm (GA) based watermarking technique solves the rounding error problem and provide an efficient embedding approach. Each chapter provides the reader with a fundamental, theoretical framework, while developing the extensive advanced techniques and considering the essential principles of the digital watermarking and steganographic systems. Several robust algorithms that are presented throughout illustrate the framework and provide assistance and tools in understanding and implementing the fundamental principles.

"This book covers a wide range of the digital image data hiding field. Reversible and irreversible digital image watermarking techniques applied to spatial, frequency, and compressed domains are extensively presented. Especially, the author shows how intelligent techniques such as Genetic Algorithm (GA) and Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) can be applied to image watermarking. Also, machine learning techniques such as Support Vector Machines (SVMs), Artificial Neural Networks (ANNs), and Principle Component Analysis (PCA) applied to Steganalysis are considered. This book is highly recommended for students, researchers, and professionals who are interested and seeking for state-of-the-art and intelligent techniques in the watermarking and steganography field."
