A new paper got accepted at the Criminal Use of Information Hiding (CUING) Workshop at ARES'18:
W. Mazurczyk, S. Wendzel, K. Cabaj: Towards Deriving Insights into Data Hiding Methods Using Pattern-based Approach (to appear in ARES'18).
In network information hiding, hiding patterns are used to describe
hiding methods and their taxonomy. In this paper, we analyze the current
state of hiding patterns and we further improve their taxonomy. In
order to more thoroughly characterize and understand data hiding methods
applied to communication networks we propose to distinguish between
sender-side and receiver-side patterns. Additionally, we show how
information hiding patterns can be utilized to conveniently describe the
realization of the distributed network covert channels.
