Low feature dimension in image steganographic recognition

Steganalysis aids in the detection of steganographic data without the need to know the embedding algorithm or the "cover" image. The researcher's major goal was to develop a Steganalysis technique that might improve recognition accuracy while utilizing a minimal feature vector dimension. A number of Steganalysis techniques have been developed to detect steganography in images. However, the steganalysis technique's performance is still limited due to their large feature vector dimension, which takes a long time to compute. The variations of texture and properties of an embedded image are clearly seen. Therefore, in this paper, we proposed Steganalysis recognition based on one of the texture features, such as gray level co-occurrence matrix (GLCM). As a classifier, Ada-Boost and Gaussian discriminant analysis (GDA) are used. In order to evaluate the performance of the proposed method, we use a public database in our proposed and applied it using IStego100K datasets. The results of the experiment show that the proposed can improve accuracy greatly. It also indicates that in terms of accuracy, the Ada-Boost classifier surpassed the GDA. The comparative findings show that the proposed method outperforms other current techniques especially in terms of feature size and recognition accuracy.
