Impact Analysis for Securing Image Data using Hybrid SLT and DCT

Abstract—This paper propose a hybrid technique in securing image data that will be applied in telemedicine in future. Based on the web-based ENT diagnosis system using Virtual Hospital Server (VHS), patients are able to submit their physiological signals and multimedia data through the internet. In telemedicine system, image data need more secure to protect data patients in web. Cryptography and steganography are techniques that can be used to secure image data implementation. In this paper, steganography method is suggested to be applied using hybrid between Discrete Cosine Transform (DCT) and Slantlet Transform (SLT) technique. DCT is calculated on blocks of independent pixels, a coding error causes discontinuity between blocks resulting in annoying blocking artifact. While SLT applies on entire image and offers better energy compaction compare to DCT without any blocking artifact. Furthermore, SLT splits component into numerous frequency bands called sub bands or octave bands. It is known that SLT is a better than DWT based scheme and better time localization. Weakness of DCT is eliminated by SLT that employ an improved version of the usual Discrete Wavelet Transform (DWT). Some comparison of technique is included in this paper to show the capability of the hybrid SLT and DCT.

Index Terms—Steganography, discrete cosine transform, slantlet transform.
