Today, more than 80% of the data transmitted over networks and archived on our computers, tablets, cell phones or clouds is multimedia data – images, videos, audio, 3D data. The applications of this data range from video games to healthcare, and include computer-aided design, video surveillance and biometrics. It is becoming increasingly urgent to secure this data, not only during transmission and archiving, but also during its retrieval and use. Indeed, in today’s "all-digital" world, it is becoming ever-easier to copy data, view it unrightfully, steal it or falsify it. Multimedia Security 2 analyzes issues relating to biometrics, protection, integrity and encryption of multimedia data. It also covers aspects such as crypto-compression of images and videos, homomorphic encryption, data hiding in the encrypted domain and secret sharing.
In multimedia and communication environments all documents must be protected against attacks. The movie Forrest Gump showed how multimedia documents can be manipulated. The required security can be achieved by a number of different security measures. This book provides an overview of the current research in Multimedia and Communication Security. A broad variety of subjects are addressed including: network security; attacks; cryptographic techniques; healthcare and telemedicine; security infrastructures; payment systems; access control; models and policies; auditing and firewalls. This volume contains the selected proceedings of the joint conference on Communications and Multimedia Security; organized by the International Federation for Information processing and supported by the Austrian Computer Society, Gesellschaft fuer Informatik e.V. and TeleTrust Deutschland e.V. The conference took place in Essen, Germany, in September 1996
This second issue in the LNCS Transactions on Data Hiding and Multimedia Security contains five papers dealing with a wide range of topics related to multimedia security. Coverage includes an introduction to Fingercasting, which allows joint fingerprinting and decryption of broadcast messages; a presentation on estimation attack on content-based video fingerprinting; and a survey on various blind and robust watermarking schemes for 3D shapes.
Intellectual property owners who exploit new ways of reproducing, distributing, and marketing their creations digitally must also protect them from piracy. Multimedia Security Handbook addresses multiple issues related to the protection of digital media, including audio, image, and video content. This volume examines leading-edge multimedia securit
Since the mid 1990s, data hiding has been proposed as an enabling technology for securing multimedia communication, and is now used in various applications including broadcast monitoring, movie fingerprinting, steganography, video indexing and retrieval, and image authentication. Data hiding and cryptographic techniques are often combined to complement each other, thus triggering the development of a new research field of multimedia security. Besides, two related disciplines, steganalysis and data forensics, are increasingly attracting researchers and becoming another new research field of multimedia security. This journal, LNCS Transactions on Data Hiding and Multimedia Security, aims to be a forum for all researchers in these emerging fields, publishing both original and archival research results. This special issue contains five selected papers that were presented at the Workshop on Pattern Recognition for IT Security, held in Darmstadt, Germany, in September 2010, in conjunction with the 32nd Annual Symposium of the German Association for Pattern Recognition, DAGM 2010. It demonstrates the broad range of security-related topics that utilize graphical data. The contributions explore the security and reliability of biometric data, the power of machine learning methods to differentiate forged images from originals, the effectiveness of modern watermark embedding schemes and the use of information fusion in steganalysis.
This book constitutes the thoroughly refereed post-workshop proceedings of the 11th International Workshop on Information Hiding, IH 2009, held in Darmstadt, Germany, in June 2009. The 19 revised full papers presented were carefully reviewed and selected from 55 submissions. The papers are organized in topical sections on steganography, steganalysis, watermarking, fingerprinting, hiding in unusual content, novel applications and forensics.
This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 16th International Workshop on Digital Forensics and Watermarking, IWDW 2017, held in Magdeburg, Germany, in August 2017. The 30 papers presented in this volume were carefully reviewed and selected from 48 submissions. The contributions are covering the state-of-the-art theoretical and practical developments in the fields of digital watermarking, steganography and steganalysis, forensics and anti-forensics, visual cryptography, and other multimedia-related security issues. Also included are the papers on two special sessions on biometric image tampering detection and on emerging threats of criminal use of information hiding : usage scenarios and detection approaches.
Intelligence in Networks is a concept, the meaning of which is highly related to the time-period when it is used. In the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s, it was mainly related to the teleservice repertoire `an sich'. In the 1990s, it is more related to efficient flexibility in the introduction of new teleservices and teleservice repertoire. This state-of-the-art text sets out to identify and study issues related to solutions for increasing intelligence in networks. As examples, intelligence networks (IN), telecommunication information networking architecture (TINA) and mobile agents and active networks are different solutions for improving the grade of network intelligence. The areas under discussion include research and development within various closely related fields such as: Teleservices, service architecture and service creation; Middleware and specification languages; Mobile agents, active networks, plug-and-play issues; and Quality of service and performance.£/LIST£ Intelligence in Networks contains the proceedings of SMARTNET'99, the fifth in a series of conferences on intelligence in networks sponsored by the International Federation for Information Processing (IFIP), at the Asian Institute of Technology, Pathumthani, Thailand in November 1999.
This volume covers many aspects of multimedia and communications security, from national security policies to file server architectures, from hypertext documents to specialized cryptographic algorithms. It provides the interested reader with a spectrum of up-to-the-minute knowledge on the topics covered.
