Abstract: 
We present a new high-payload joint reversible data-hiding scheme for encrypted images. Instead of embedding data in the encrypted image directly, the content owner first uses an interpolation technique to estimate whether the location can be used for embedding and generates a location map before encryption. Next, the data hider embeds the additional data through flipping the most significant bits (MSBs) of the encrypted image according to the location map. At the receiver side, before extracting the additional data and reconstructing the image, the receiver decrypts the image first. Experimental results demonstrate that the proposed method can achieve real reversibility, which means data extraction and image recovery are free of error. Moreover, our scheme can embed more payloads than most existing reversible data hiding schemes in encrypted images.

基于插值技术的高容量密文图像可逆信息隐藏算法

概要:本文提出一种新型的高容量密文图像可逆信息隐藏方法。与直接在密文图像中嵌入数据不同,内容拥有者首先利用插值技术在加密前估算出嵌入的位置并生成地图;其次,数据隐藏者根据位置地图,通过翻转密文图像的最高有效位来嵌入额外的数据。在接收端口,接收者在提取嵌入数据和重构图像前先解密图像。实验结果表明该方法可实现完全可逆,即数据提取和图像恢复都无误。此外,与现有大多数密文图像可逆隐藏方案相比,本方案可实现更高的嵌入容量。
