Some image statistics changes for embedding information with container image statistics accounting and without were checked.As a container considered static digital images in JPEG file format, data hiding in least significant bits of container discrete cosine transform coefficients provided. Container distortion parameters were measured and chi-square test was conducted for embedding information with container image statistics accounting and without. Also values distribution for container discrete cosine transform coefficients was checked. Obtained data allow improving algorithm with image statistic features considering. Decreasing image distortions and statistics changes will reduce probability of hidden message detection with histogram-based and statistical steganoanalysis.
