Some concepts

Some Concepts

  • PSNR (Peak Signal-to-Noise Ratio)

    • An engineering term for the ratio between the maximum possible power of a signal and the power of corrupting noise that affects the fidelity of its representation

    • The PSNR is most commonly used as a measure of quality of reconstruction of lossy compression (e.g., for image compression).

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peak_signal-to-noise_ratio


Some concepts1

Some Concepts

  • PSNR (Peak Signal-to-Noise Ratio)

    • Mathematical definition

    • , in dB

    • I = cover image, K = marked image

    • MAXI = maximum gray value 255

  • PSNR represent the distortion level between marked image and cover image

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peak_signal-to-noise_ratio


Some concepts2

Some Concepts

  • PSNR (Peak Signal-to-Noise Ratio)

    • Typical values in lossy image and video compression are between 30 and 50 dB, where higher is better.

Original Image

PSNR=31.45dB

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peak_signal-to-noise_ratio


Some concepts3

Some Concepts

  • Histogram Pair

    • Histogram h(x) is the number of occurrence as the variable X assumes value x, i.e. X is number of pixels on one certain gray value in an image.

    • Only two consecutive integers a and b assumed by X are considered, i.e. x ∈ a, b.

    • Furthermore, let h(a) = m and h(b) = 0. We call these two points as a histogram pair.

    • And sometimes denote it by, h = [m, 0], or simply [m, 0].

Histogram Pair

  • Advantages

    • Large data payload

    • 5k-60k bits for 512*512*8 grayscale image

    • High visual quality

    • PSNR > 48 dB

  • Method

    • Histogram Pair

Z. Ni, Y. Q. Shi, N. Ansari and W. Su, Reversible Data Hiding


Embedding algorithm

Embedding Algorithm

  • Use “Lena” image as an example

  • Step 1:

    • In the histogram find zero point (e.g. 255 no pixel on the gray value of 255);

    • Then find peak point (e.g. 155 maximum number of pixels on the gray value of 155);

    • The objective to find the peak point is to increase the embedding capacity as large as possible, which will be further explained.

Z. Ni, Y. Q. Shi, N. Ansari and W. Su, Reversible Data Hiding


Embedding algorithm1

Embedding Algorithm

  • Step 1:


Embedding algorithm2

Embedding Algorithm

  • Step 2:

    • The whole image is scanned;

    • The gray value of pixel with gray value between 156 and 254 is incremented by one;

    • This step is equivalent to shifting the range of histogram [156,254] one unit towards the right hand side leaving the gray value 156 empty;

    • Then a=155 and b=156 are adjacent integers, h = [2785, 0] is a histogram pair.

Z. Ni, Y. Q. Shi, N. Ansari and W. Su, Reversible Data Hiding


Embedding algorithm3

Embedding Algorithm

  • Step 2: h = [2785, 0] is a histogram pair


Embedding algorithm4

Embedding Algorithm

  • Step 3:

    • The whole image is scanned once again;

    • Once a pixel with gray value of 155 is encountered, we check the data to be embedded;

    • If the to-be-embedded bit is “1”, the pixel value is added by 1. Otherwise, the pixel value is kept intact.

    • The capacity of this algorithm equals to the maximum number of pixels (2785 bits)

Embedding Algorithm

  • Step 3: Embedded data


Embedding algorithm6

Embedding Algorithm

  • Step 3: Embedded data

  • PSNR = 53.8 dB


Retrieval algorithm

Retrieval algorithm

  • Step 1:

    • The whole marked image is scanned;

    • The order must be same as embedding;

    • Once the gray value of the maximum point is met, if the value is intact, e.g., 155, the “0” is retrieved;

    • If the value is altered, e.g., 156, the “1” is retrieved;

    • In this way, the data embedded can be retrieved.

Z. Ni, Y. Q. Shi, N. Ansari and W. Su, Reversible Data Hiding


Retrieval algorithm1

Retrieval algorithm

  • Step 2:

    • The whole image is scanned once again;

    • Once the pixels whose gray value is between the peak point (e.g. 155) and the zero point (e.g. 255) is met (e.g. interval [156,255]), the gray value of those pixels will be subtracted by 1;

    • In this way, the original image can be recovered without any distortion.

Z. Ni, Y. Q. Shi, N. Ansari and W. Su, Reversible Data Hiding


Retrieval algorithm2

Retrieval algorithm

  • Result: Data error rate=0, Image error rate=0

Z. Ni, Y. Q. Shi, N. Ansari and W. Su, Reversible Data Hiding


Reversible data hiding

PSNR

  • PSNR of all marked images is above 48 dB;

  • Because the pixels whose gray value is between the zero point and the peak point will add by 1 or minus by 1;

  • In the worst case, all pixels of the image will add or minus by 1. That means MSE=1;

  • Hence the PSNR=10xLog10(255x255/MSE)=48.13 dB.

Some concepts5

Some Concepts

  • Companding

    • The process of signal compression and expansion.

  • Compression and Expansion

    • Compression: mapping large range of original signals x, into narrower range, y=C(x).

    • Expansion: reverse process of compression, x=E(y).

    • After expansion, the expanded signals are close to the original ones.

G. Xuan, C. Yang, Y. Zhen, Y. Q. Shi, and Z. Ni, Reversible Data Hiding Using Integer Wavelet Transform and Companding Technique


Some concepts6

Some Concepts

  • Companding

    • Assume the original signals are x,

    • If the compression function is y=C(x);

    • If the expansion function is x=E(y);

    • If the equation E[C(x)]=x is satisfied, then this kind of companding could be applied into reversible data hiding.

G. Xuan, C. Yang, Y. Zhen, Y. Q. Shi, and Z. Ni, Reversible Data Hiding Using Integer Wavelet Transform and Companding Technique


Some concepts7

Some Concepts

  • Companding in Reversible Data Hiding

    • Let y=C(x), y=P1P2P3…Pn, Pi ∈ {0,1};

    • Let b ∈ {0,1}, y’=P1P2P3…Pnb, then y’=P(y)=2y+b, b is the hiding data;

    • If y’x, modification of signal will hardly be perceived;

    • By hiding data extraction, extract LSB of y’, i.e. b=LSB(y’), recover signal y=(y’-b)/2;

    • Recover original signal x by expansion x=E(y)

G. Xuan, C. Yang, Y. Zhen, Y. Q. Shi, and Z. Ni, Reversible Data Hiding Using Integer Wavelet Transform and Companding Technique


Some concepts8

Some Concepts

  • Companding in Reversible Data Hiding

    • So, two conditions must be satisfied:

      • y=C(x), x=E[y], => E[C(x)]=x;

      • Condition (1): E[C(x)]=x;

      • y’=P(y)=2y+bx, => P[C(x)]x;

      • Condition (2): P[C(x)]x

G. Xuan, C. Yang, Y. Zhen, Y. Q. Shi, and Z. Ni, Reversible Data Hiding Using Integer Wavelet Transform and Companding Technique


Some concepts9

Some Concepts

  • For Condition (1), E[C(x)]=x

    • Any one-to-one mapping function can be used;

    • For multiple x mapped to single y, still could be used, E.g. , use bit “0” to indicate , and bit “1” to indicate , these overhead data also need to embedded into original signal.

  • So, condition (1) is easy to satisfied.

G. Xuan, C. Yang, Y. Zhen, Y. Q. Shi, and Z. Ni, Reversible Data Hiding Using Integer Wavelet Transform and Companding Technique


Some concepts10

Some Concepts

  • For Condition (2), P[C(x)]x

    • On study of Human Visual System (HVS) points out that slight modification on wavelet high frequency sub band coefficients is hard to be perceived by human eyes.

    • The method to compand image is to slightly change wavelet high frequency sub band coefficients for hiding data.

  • So condition (2) could be satisfied.

G. Xuan, C. Yang, Y. Zhen, Y. Q. Shi, and Z. Ni, Reversible Data Hiding Using Integer Wavelet Transform and Companding Technique


Some concepts11

Some Concepts

  • Sub bands (embedding region) for data hiding in coefficients are three high frequency sub bands HH, HL and LH.

  • Question is: How to select the most suitable embedding region?

G. Xuan, Y. Q. Shi, P. Chai, X. Cui, Z. Ni, and X. Tong, Optimum Histogram Pair Based Image Lossless Data Embedding


Some concepts12

Some Concepts

  • Wavelet Transform

    • Likes Fourier Transform, is used to analysis image in frequency domain.

    • Fourier Transform is based on sinusoid functions;

    • Wavelet Transform is based on small waves (wavelets) which are varying in frequency and limited duration.

  • Integer Wavelet Transform (IWT) maps integer to integer and can reconstruct the original signal with out distortion.

C. Gonzalez and R. E. Woods, < Digital Image Processing >, Prentice Hall, 3rd (2007) edition

G. Xuan, C. Yang, Y. Zhen, Y. Q. Shi, and Z. Ni, Reversible Data Hiding Using Integer Wavelet Transform and CompandingTechnique


Some concepts13

Some Concepts

  • IWT high frequency sub band coefficients has two features:

    • Most coefficients are small in magnitude, so it is convenient to select compression function C(x), could use linear functions to satisfy Condition (2), P[C(x)]x;

    • For coefficients are large in magnitude, linear functionsare difficult to satisfy Condition (2), P[C(x)]x;

    • A pre-defined threshold T is introduced to treat these two kinds of coefficients differently.

G. Xuan, C. Yang, Y. Zhen, Y. Q. Shi, and Z. Ni, Reversible Data Hiding Using Integer Wavelet Transform and Companding Technique


Some concepts14

Some Concepts

  • Threshold T

    • For use one to one mapping function;

    • For x, x+1, or x-1… are compressed to same y and the recording data need to be embedded into wavelet coefficients as index for distinguish different values mapped to the same y;

    • If T is small, a good visual quality of marked image is achieved;

    • If T is large, a larger payload can be achieved.

  • Question is: How to choose the best threshold T?

G. Xuan, C. Yang, Y. Zhen, Y. Q. Shi, and Z. Ni, Reversible Data Hiding Using Integer Wavelet Transform and Companding Technique


Some concepts15

Some Concepts

  • Histogram Modification

    • After data embedded in coefficients, some pixel’s gray value may overflow (>255) or underflow (<0);

    • Histogram modification is needed to narrow the histogram from both sides by GR and GL;

    • Modification G=GR+GL.

G. Xuan, Y. Q. Shi, P. Chai, X. Cui, Z. Ni, and X. Tong, Optimum Histogram Pair Based Image Lossless Data Embedding


Some concepts16

Some Concepts

  • Histogram Modification

    • This modification is needed to be recorded and embedded as part of the overhead for recovery the original cover image.

  • Question is: How to make adaptive histogram modification?

G. Xuan, C. Yang, Y. Zhen, Y. Q. Shi, and Z. Ni, Reversible Data Hiding Using Integer Wavelet Transform and Companding Technique
