Abstract

Image steganography has various usages due to the recent advances in technology, specially in the field of data communication. Even though steganography has been used so far mostly to secretly embed data, we make use of it for embedding cleartext data, which everyone can has access. This work proposes a new method for cross format metadata embedding in images that is based on QR codes, that seems to have several significant advantages over current method of storing metadata.
