Abstract
In this paper we consider the problem of capacity analysis in the framework of information-theoretic model of data hiding. Capacity is determined by the stochastic model of the host image, by the distortion constraints and by the side information about watermarking channel state available at the encoder and at the decoder. We emphasize the importance of proper modeling of image statistics and outline the possible decrease in the expected fundamental capacity limits, if there is a mismatch between the stochastic image model used in the hider/attacker optimization game and the actual model used by the attacker. To obtain a realistic estimation of pssible embedding rates we propose a novel stochastic non-stationary image model that is based on geometrical priors. This model outperforms the previously analyzed EQ and spike models in reference application such as denoising. Finally, we demonstrate how the proposed model influences the estimation of capacity for real images. We extend our model to different transform domains that include orthogonal, biorthogonal and overcomplete data representations.
