Multi-Level Steganography Applied to Networks

Wojciech Frączek , Wojciech Mazurczyk , Krzysztof Szczypiorski


The paper presents Multi-Level Steganography (MLS), which defines a new concept for hidden communication in telecommunication networks, In MLS, at least two steganographic methods arę utilised simultaneously, in such a way that one method (called the upper-level) serves as a carrier for the second one (called the lower-level). Such a relationship between two (or more) information hiding solutions has several potential benefits. The most important is that the lower-level method steganographic bandwidth can be utilised to mąkę the ste-ganogram unreadable even after the detection of the upper-level method: e.g., it can carry a cryptographic key that deciphers the steganogram carried by the upper-level one. It can also be used to provide the steganogram with integrity
