Paper Abstract

In this paper, we present a new method for estimating the secret message length of bit-streams embedded using the Least Significant Bit embedding (LSB) at random pixel positions. We introduce the concept of a weighted stego image and then formulate the problem of determining the unknown message length as a simple optimization problem. The methodology is further refined to obtain more stable and accurate results for a wide spectrum of natural images. One of the advantages of the new method is its modular structure and a clean mathematical derivation that enables elegant estimator accuracy analysis using statistical image models.
