Abstract

Reversible data hiding technique is able to restore the cover data exactly after data extraction. This paper presents a new reversible data hiding scheme based on the combination of edge detection and pixel value ordering mechanism is proposed. In the proposed scheme, the cover image is divided into smooth or rough areas by Canny edge detection algorithm. Then, the secret data is embedded into pixels in the smooth areas based on pixel value ordering algorithm to obtain better image quality of marked images. The experimental results demonstrate that our scheme achieves better visual quality than those of state-of-the-art schemes while guaranteeing the reversibility.
