Security Enhancement Using Image Inpainting

Authors(4) :-A.Rahul, M. Shankar Ganesh, T.R.B Shaman Raj, M. Veluchamy

Data Hiding and Compression of digital images have always been considered as separate modules. Thus, we propose a joint data-hiding and compression scheme for digital images using Side Match Vector Quantization (SMVQ) and Image Inpainting. Data Hiding and Image Compression can be integrated into a Single Module. On the user side, the blocks in the leftmost and topmost of the image, each of the other residual blocks in raster-scanning order by hiding the data through embedded and compressed simultaneously. The receiver can achieve the extraction of secret bits and image decompression successfully according to the index values in the segmented sections.
