Paper Abstract

In this paper, we introduce a novel technique for covertly embedding data throughout an image using redundant number system decomposition over non-standard digital bit planes. It will be shown that this new steganography method has minimal visual distortive affects while also preserving both first and second order cover statistics, making it less susceptible to most general steganalysis attacks. This paper begins by reviewing the common numerical methods used in today's binary-based steganography algorithms. We then describe some the basic concepts and challenges when attempting to implement complex embedding algorithms that are based on a redundant number system. Finally, we introduce a novel class of numerical based multiple bit-plane decomposition systems, which we define as Adjunctive Numerical Representations. This new system will not only provide the statistical stability required for effective steganography but will also give us an improvement in the embedding capacity for our multimedia carrier files.
