A novel solution to the problem of data embedding in images is proposed in this paper. The proposed algorithm allows high capacity data embedding and is robust to JPEG image compression. Data is embedded in the wavelet domain which provides better perceptual masking compared to the DCT domain. Set Partitioning in Hierarchical Trees (SPIHT) is used to control the distortion (in the sense of PSNR) in the embedded host. Unlike other data embedding algorithms available in literature, the proposed algorithm provides control over the BER of the embedded data by appropriately choosing the JPEG quantization matrix. Preliminary results of an implementation of the algorithm are also presented.
