Data Hiding in Financial Transactions

2011/2012 Summer Studentship Project at RMIT CS&IT, supervised by Dr Ron van Schyndel, presented on Friday February 24, 2012 at the 2012 RMITCS Summer Studentship Seminar.


The aim of this project is to develop a framework to allow experiments with data hiding in financial transactions, and for detecting the use of information hiding in financial transactions.

An analysis is made of electronic funds transfer systems in use within Australia, particularly those used for direct credit transactions. A model of financial transaction networks based on Australian systems is developed and a simulator framework which implements the model described is developed for conducting further research. Several example data hiding techniques and scenarios are presented.
