Due to the advancement in sensor technology and digital hardware, signal processing find its applications in variety of disciplines. The headway in digital technology leads to easy creation of various types of signal such as audio, speech, video and images in different modalities. Similarly the advancement in computer hardware increases the rate of processing of signal to accomplish a specific task in an identified domain. Thus the technological advancement in media production and computer hardware/communications makes information processing / transmission relatively simple and quick but at the same times the rate of exposure to various threats keeps increases for multimedia data. It is a very challenging task to provide security for multimedia data due to the availability of many manipulating tools and software at a free of cost. At present, to provide security for multimedia data, various security mechanisms have been developed and being in use including cryptography, steganography and digital watermarking. Cryptographic techniques could be used to protect digital data during the transmission from the sender to the receiver but once it gets decrypted at the reception end there is no control over data in providing security further. In contrast, steganography could be used for secret communication between trusted parties with the limitation of payload and digital watermarking could be used identify the source, creator, owner, distributor or authorized consumer of multimedia data. Thus signal processing provides a major role in providing security for multimedia data.
While these are a few examples of issues, our intention in editing this book is to offer concepts of digital signal processing in combined with computational intelligence for multimedia security technologies in a precise and clear manner to the research community. In editing the book, our attempt is to provide frontier advances and applications of Signal processing techniques. The conceptual basis required achieving in depth knowledge in the field of signal processing and computational intelligence for security will be stressed upon. All these motivated us towards Intelligent Techniques in Signal Processing for Multimedia Security.
