A new cost function for spatial image steganography based on 2D-SSA and WMF. (2021)
Journal Article
XIE, G., REN, J., MARSHALL, S., ZHAO, H. and LI, H. 2021. A new cost function for spatial image steganography based on 2D-SSA and WMF. IEEE access [online], 9, pages 30604-30614. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1109/ACCESS.2021.3059690

As an essential tool for secure communications, adaptive steganography aims to communicate secret information with the least security cost. Inspired by the Ranking Priority Profile (RPP), we propose a novel two-step cost function for adaptive stegano...
