Terrorists might use it to mask their messages: it's called data hiding - the subject of a new book by Ali Akansu, PhD, professor of electrical and computer engineering at New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT). Akansu's book, Data Hiding Fundamentals and Applications: Content Security in Digital Multimedia, published by Elsevier-Academic Press (2004), develops a theoretical framework for different data hiding techniques, including watermarking. >>
Data hiding is the subject of a new book by Ali Akansu, PhD, professor of electrical and computer engineering at NJIT. Akansu's book, Data Hiding Fundamentals and Applications: Content Security in Digital Multimedia, develops a theoretical framework for different data hiding techniques, including watermarking, and is the first to place data hiding techniques within a framework that tells readers how to calculate the allowable hidden bits of information and crack the code of data hiding. >>
"Planning for Disaster," a special Honors College Colloquium, will be held on October 25, 2004, 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. in Weston Hall, Lecture 1 (located on the lower level of the School of Architecture Building). Joseph Picciano, P.E., Acting Director of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and Homeland Security for New York, New Jersey, Puerto RIco and the U.S. Virgin Islands, and Kathryn Humphrey, Response & Recovery Division Director for FEMA and Homeland Security, will be the guest speakers at the event, which is open to the university community.

Researchers at New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) are putting a 21st century spin on a 19th century technology to make the nation's ports and coastal waters safer. Airships — known today mainly for advertising flyovers at football games — are the core of a new coastal surveillance system in development for the Missile Defense Agency (MDA) of the U.S. Department of Defense. But the new models will bear little resemblance to their predecessors. These High Altitude Stratospheric Airships (HASAs) will be unmanned, stationary platforms 14 to 16 miles above the ground. At 500 feet long and 150 feet in diameter with a volume of 5 million cubic feet, the HASAs will be 25 times the size of a Goodyear blimp. >>
A team of experts in computer science and computer engineering representing NJIT will join six other teams from the New Jersey Universities Consortium on Homeland Security on Oct. 12 to play out a scenario of analysis and response to a crippling cyber-attack on the Internet. Participating in the event, which is part of the New Jersey Statewide Symposium on Homeland Security at Rutgers-Newark, are: Henry Bar-Levav, Yeheskel Bar-Ness, Denis Bieber, John Federici, Bill Marshall, and SIrin Tekinay. >>
