We consider the problem of hiding images in images. In addition to the usual design constraints such as imperceptible host degradation and robustness in presence of variety of attacks, we impose the condition that the quality of the recovered signature image should be better if the attack is milder. We present a simple hybrid analog-digital hiding technique for this purpose. The signature image is compressed efficiently (using JPEG) into a sequence of bits, which is hidden using a previously proposed digital hiding scheme. The residual error between the original and compressed signature image is then hidden using an analog hiding scheme. The results show (perceptual as well as mean-square error) improvement as the attack becomes milder.
