Description stage and background reading

In preparation for my dissertation I have started reading background material on general steganography and video encoding. There are very few books which cover video steganography, therefore I have been reading material which covers audio and image steganography. Whilst these books do not deal with the video, they do teach and explain the fundamental approaches that are 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 tool where developed using knowledge and techniques gained from the background reading.

In preparation for the Survey and Analysis stage of my dissertation, I intent to read and assimilate as many papers as I can find on the subject matter, to date my literary sources 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.
