Talk (and Live Stream) on Information Hiding

Steffen Wendzel will give a talk entitled steganography ante portas at this year's Hack-in-the-Box (HitB) event in Amsterdam on April, 12th. The talk will provide an overview of current developments in Information Hiding and will also introduce the Europol EC3-supported CUING initiative.

You can register for the live stream here (free). Please note that the talk will be based (at least in parts) on our recent CACM paper (open access).

Digital Forensics and Information Hiding

We recently published an article on the challenges and the future of digital forensics (IEEExplore link, ResearchGate link). When dealing with digital forensics, network information hiding can be, among others, considerd one of the key challenges that analysts face and will continue to do so. However, one other key problem lies in the nature of the Internet of Things (IoT). Our article is an introductory one for a special issue of IEEE Security and Privacy, providing an overview to those who are interested in the domain.

Information Hiding + Science 2.0

In a new paper, we discuss how Information Hiding can be combined with Science 2.0/Open Science.

Steffen Wendzel, Luca Caviglione, Wojciech Mazurczyk, Jean-Francois Lalande:
Network Information Hiding and Science 2.0: Can it be a Match?,
Int. Journal of Electronics and Telecommunications, Vol. 63(2), pp. 217-222, 2017.

Science 2.0 aims at using the information sharing and collaborative features of the Internet to offer new features to the research community. Science 2.0 has been already applied to computer sciences, especially bioinformatics. For network information hiding, a field studying the possibility of concealing a communication in networks, the application of Science 2.0 is still a rather uncovered territory. To foster the discussion of potential benefits for network information hiding, we provide a disquisition for six different Science 2.0 aspects when applied to this domain.
