Zeros hiding detection

In order to find data hiding with our zeros hidden method, we first analyzed the histogram of the DCTcoefficients of an uncompressed image, compressed image without data, and compressed image with hidden data. The histogram of theDCT coefficients reveals the number of times each DCT coefficient value appears within the DCT matrix. From the analysis of anuncompressed image (Figure 1), the histogram has a smooth curve. In the histogram of compressed image (Figure 2), values before thethreshold are dropped. Therefore, those values dropped to zero in the histogram. The histogram of compressed image with data (Figure3) shows a similar shape to an uncompressed image. However, the values are much lower which makes sense since we are replacing thevalues that were originally going to be dropped with data. Therefore it is statically less likely to replace the dropped valuewith the same value.

Therefore, after analyzing the histogram of the different types of images, we did an analysis of the l2 norm inthe DCT matrix. If the analysis results in no power in the one valued DCT coefficients, it is a compressed image. This is due tothe fact that ones are the minimum value that can be dropped. If there is power in the ones, then the image is either uncompressedor contains hidden data. The key difference between the two is the magnitude of the power in the ones. Statistically, it is lesslikely that every dropped coefficient gets replaced with a one. Therefore, the magnitude of the power in the ones in an image withdata is lower than a compressed image. An image with hidden data will on average fall below a certain threshold. This threshold isdependent on the image size. Figure 4 shows the plots of the power without data, the power with data, and the threshold. Clearly, thepower without data is greater than the power with data. We found our detection program to have a 90% success rate but resulted in afalse-positive 12% of the time.

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.
