Steganalysis consists in classifying documents as steganographied or genuine. This paper presents a methodology for steganalysis based on a set of 193 features with two main goals: determine a sufficient number of images for effective training of a classifier in the obtained high-dimensional space, and use feature selection to select most relevant features for the desired classification. Dimensionality reduction is performed using a forward selection and reduces the original 193 features set by a factor of 13, with overall same performance.
