Wavelet Based Pseudo Quantum Steganography within Pseudo Color Barcode
Authors: Hieu Q. Nguyen, Xiaodi Wang
Abstract: As information technology continues to accelerate, the need for transmitting secret information is in high demand whether information is from a corporation, the government, social media, or an individual. To meet high security and robustness requirements from various users, many steganography and cryptograph algorithms have been developed. As a result of the current advancements and developments of quantum computers and quantum computing theory, new quantum steganography schemes are more and more attractive due to their unconditional security assured by Heisenbergâ€™s uncertainty principle and no-cloning theorem. In this research, instead of using real quantum methods such as quantum key distribution (QKD, quantum secret sharing (QSS), quantum secure direct communication (QSDC), we propose a Pseudo Quantum Steganography using Pseudo Color Barcode in M-band Wavelet Domain. The probability to decode our hidden information is about 12ð‘› where n is the size of that information if we perform this algorithm on a classical computer. Due to its nature, this algorithm is nearly impossible for any attackers to decode if our algorithm is performed on a quantum computer.
