Call for papers

Network steganography is a part of information hiding focused on modern networks and is a method of hiding secret data in users' normal data transmissions, ideally, so it cannot be detected by third parties. Steganographic techniques arise and evolve with the development of network protocols and mechanisms, and are expected to used in secret communication or information sharing. Now, it becomes a hot topic due to the wide spread of information networks, e.g., multimedia services in networks and social networks.

The workshop is dedicated to capture such areas of research as steganography, steganalysis (steganology), and digital forensics in the meaning of network covert channels, investigate the potential applications, and discuss the future research topics. Research themes of workshop will include:
