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 be 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.

This year's workshop's main theme is network forensics.

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 the workshop will include:

* Steganography and steganalysis (steganology)
* Covert/subliminal channels
* Novel applications of information hiding in networks
* Political and business issues related to network steganography
* Information hiding in multimedia services
* Digital forensics
* Network communication modelling from the viewpoint of steganography and steganalysis
* New methods for detecting and eliminating network steganography

The first workshop was held in Wuhan (China) in November 2009 and second workshop in Nanjing (China) in November 2010.
