  • steganalysis in the JPEG domain;
  • steganography and steganalysis and JPEG images;
  • steganographic embedding in JPEG, of JPEG-based feature sets;
  • quality/compression level, and quantisation matrix choice;
  • lossless compression as Huffmann coding, one-to-one mapping;
  • 4-D structure of JPEG, more options than spatial domain;
  • first-order features from histogram of JPEG coefficients;
  • HCF in JPEG domain, being in spatial domain;
  • NCPEV-219, from co-occurrence/difference matrices, with a twist
