Ternary Echo Hiding in Echo Files
Preprints are manuscripts made publicly available before they have been submitted for formal peer review and publication. They might contain new research findings or data. Preprints can be a draft or final version of an author's research but must not have been accepted for publication at the time of submission.
We propose a new family of echo hiding procedures designed to work with audio files with ternary watermarks. Most attention is paid to the case when the image is used as a watermark. The possibility of using a melody for this purpose is also mentioned. A human is supposed to be a detector to prove the presence of a watermark in the audio file. The approach employs infinite impulse response (IIR) filters of a particular form that provides a capability insertion a few symbols into a fragment of the container. The suggested method’s payload and resistance to various attacks exceed the parameters of the classical implementation of echo hiding.
