Steganography is the method of information hiding. Free selection of cover image is a particular preponderance of steganography to other information hiding techniques. The performance of steganographic system can be improved by selecting the reasonable cover image. This article presents two level unsupervised image classification algorithm based on statistical characteristics of the image which helps Sender to make reasonable selection of cover image to enhance performance of steganographic method based on his specific purpose. Experiments demonstrate the effect of classification in satisfying steganography requirements.[...] Read more.
