Description Stage and Background Reading

I have started reading background material on general steganography and video encoding in preparation for my dissertation. However, there are very few books that cover video steganography. Therefore I have been reading material that covers audio and image steganography. While these books do not deal with the video, they teach and explain the fundamental approaches crucial to steganography — regardless of the container.

The online tools that can be found on this website are also part of my background reading/research. These tools were developed using knowledge and techniques gained from the background reading.

In preparation for the Survey and Analysis stage of my dissertation, I intend on reading and understanding as many papers as I can find on the subject matter. So far, the literary sources I have been studying are books only (no papers).

The resources that I have started reading so far are:

  • Fridrich, J. (2010). Steganography in Digital Media: Principles, Algorithms and Applications. Cambridge University Press.
  • Cole, E. (2003). Hiding in Plain Sight: Steganography and the Art of Covert Communication. Wiley Publishing, Inc.
  • Mukhopadhyay, J. (2011). Image and Video Processing in the Compressed Domain. CRC Press.
