A Novel Reversible Data Hiding Technique with High Capacity and Less Overhead Information
In this paper, a new reversible image hiding scheme based on histogram shifting for grayscale images is proposed. As is known, the payload storage of histogram-based reversible data hiding is impacted by the overhead information of the pixel positions that have to be embedded in a cover image. To solve this problem, the cover image is divided into two parts, namely the Most Significant Part (MSP) and the Least Significant Part (LSP) secret data is hidden by shifting the histogram of the most significant part. To increase the payload of embedded data in a cover image, the proposed algorithm reduces the number of bits that represent the secret data without any corruption of that secret data.
