A novel quantum steganography algorithm based on LSBq for multi-wavelength quantum images
In this study, a novel quantum steganography algorithm based on LSBq for multi-wavelength quantum images is proposed. In this study, both the text and the binary image messages are embedded into the cover image. The results of simulations and analysis show that our algorithm satisfies the requirements of steganography algorithms. Also, we used modulo method and Hilbert scrambling method for the security of the hidden message. It is seen that an unauthorized person obtains meaningless information when attempting to extract a embedded information through known methods. The results show that the algorithm is robust against attack when several attacks are applied on the stego-image. Finally, we compare our proposed algorithm with the related works. The results of simulation show that the our proposed algorithm has many advantages according to the related algorithms.
