Abstract
Boosted by recent advances in the information technology field, methods applied to ensure privacy of digital data became very important in many real life applications. Efficient secrecy can be achieved at least in part, by implementing steganograhy techniques. In this paper, we propose a new technique to hide text in wideband speech in noise free environment. We opted to work in the Fourier transform domain and hide the digital information within high frequency components. More precisely, our method exploits selected locations from the high-frequencies part of the cover speech to hide the secret text. We better preserve with high fidelity the spectrum shape of the speech carrier by employing an embedding rather than a replacement operation on the secret text. Our simulation results show that this approach maintains the robustness of the cover signal and achieves a higher hiding capacity. © 2010 IEEE.
