NJIT to host digital forensics, watermarking, steganography conference

The 10th International Workshop on Digital-Forensics and Watermarking will be held Oct. 23-26, 2011 at the ACH Casino Resort, Atlantic City. The event, organized by NJIT Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering Yun-Qing Shi, is a forum for researchers and practitioners working on novel research, development and applications of digital watermarking and forensics techniques for multimedia security. Conference proceedings will eventually be published on the “Lecture Notes in Computer Science” by Springer Publishing Company. For more information about the conference, contact Haifeng Xiao, 973-641-8594, hx6@njit.edu…Invited speakers are leading experts in the field of steganography: Jessica Fridrich, PhD, professor, State University of New York, Binghamton, in the department of electrical and computer engineering and Nasir Memon, PhD, professor in the computer science department at the Polytechnic Institute of New York University. NJIT Senior Vice President for Research and Development Donald H. Sebastian will deliver the opening remarks Oct. 24, 2011. Fridrich follows the greeting with a discussion about modern trends in steganography and steganalysis, questions and answers. Memon, the other invited speaker, delivers his talk, “Photo forensics—there is more to a picture than meets the eye,” on Oct. 26, 2011.

During the event, some 36 scholarly papers will be presented. The papers cover research about digital watermarking, forensics and anti-forensics, steganography and steganalysis, visual cryptography, fingerprinting, privacy and security. Throughout the event, participants will be able to exchange ideas and viewpoints and discuss issues and upcoming research.

Areas of interest at the conference include the mathematical modeling of embedding and detection, theoretic information, stochastic aspects of data hiding and security issues, including attacks and counter-attacks. More topics are the combination of data hiding and cryptography, optimum watermark detection and reliable recovery, the estimation of watermark capacity and channel coding techniques for watermarking.

Additional information will be available about large-scale experimental tests and benchmarking, new statistical and perceptual models of multimedia content, reversible data hiding, data hiding in special media, data hiding and authentication. There will also be information about steganography and steganalysis, digital forensics and anti-forensics, copyright protection, forensic watermarking, visual cryptography and more.

Alan Platt, Professional Services Consultant at MSAB, discusses his experience as a former UK police officer working in digital forensics. He talks about the different levels of digital forensics capabilities within police forces and how MSAB products like XAMN and XEC Director are used by frontline officers versus lab analysts. 

The discussion covers how MSAB partners with law enforcement to develop custom workflows for mobile device acquisitions that facilitate ISO compliance. Alan explains MSAB's managed service offering, where approved MSAB staff can remotely access a customer's XEC Director server to assist with software updates and troubleshooting. He emphasizes the strict data segregation policies enforced by customers to prevent MSAB from accessing any sensitive case data.

Looking ahead, Alan mentions MSAB's new CEO and hints at some exciting developments coming down the pipeline. He spotlights recent enhancements to XEC Director's speed and database functionality for managing large estates of networked Kiosks. Alan also plugs the new XEC Director training he created to help users fully leverage the platform's capabilities.
