This letter presents a steganography method based on a JPEG2000 lossy compression scheme and bit-plane complexity segmentation (BPCS) steganography. It overcomes the lack of robustness of bit-plane-based steganography methods with respect to lossy compression of a dummy image: a critical shortcoming that has hampered deployment in a practical scenario. The proposed method is based on a seamless integration of the two schemes without compromising their desirable features and makes feasible the deployment of the merits of a BPCS steganography technique in a practical scenario where images are compressed before being transmitted over the network. Embedding rates of around 15% of the compressed image size were achieved for preembedding 1.0-bpp compressed images with no noticeable degradation in image quality.
