This course studies both digital steganography and digital steganalysis (the science of discovering the existence of and extracting the covert information). In addition to understanding the science and the pathologies of specific carriers and hiding algorithms, participants will have hands-on experience with tools to both hide and extract information. Carrier files such as image, audio and video files will be investigated.
