Next: Tracking of RTP Streams Up: Identified Problems and Challenges Previous: Cover-Medium Size Limitations Contents
RTP is, by design, extremely susceptible to media degradation due to packet latency. As such, any processing overhead from the embedding of message data into the cover-medium or delay due to inspection of potential cover-medium packets may have a noticeable impact on the end-user's quality of experience. When manipulating an RTP stream between two endpoints that are expecting packet delivery in a timely manner, a steganographic system cannot be overly invasive when packets are not needed for embedding and must be efficient at its task when they are.
