Title: Steganography and Steganalysis and the Internet
Professor Charles Boncelet
Dept. of Electrical & Computer Engineering
Unviersity of Delaware
Steganography is the craft of hiding messages in otherwise ordinary
data. Steganalysis is the attempt to detect hidden messages. For
instance, it has been speculated that terrorists might use
steganography to communicate with hidden cells. It is, therefore,
important to develop methods to detect hidden messages. In this talk,
we discuss some of the history of steganography (from ancient Greece
to now) and focus on modern steganography using digital images. We
also discuss some recent research into steganalysis.
Charles G. Boncelet, Jr. received
the B.S. degree in applied and engineering physics
from Cornell University, Ithaca, NY, in 1980 and
the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering
and computer science from Princeton University,
Princeton NJ, in 1981 and 1984, respectively.
Since 1984, he has been with the University of
Delaware, Newark, where he currently holds a joint
appointment as a Professor in the Departments of
Electrical & Computer Engineering and Computer
& Information Sciences. He has held visiting faculty
positions at The University of Michigan, the Tampere University of Technology,
Tampere, Finland, and the Australian Defence Force Academy, Canberra,
His research interests lie in the areas of signal and image processing,
information security, lossy and lossless compression, and general computer
science. Over the years, his research has been funded by NSF, DARPA, the
Army Research Laboratory, the CIA, and various industrial companies.
Dr. Boncelet is a member of the SIAM and ASEE.
