We propose a method for steganalysis of still, grayscale images using a novel set of features that are extracted from images. This feature set employs the Gabor filter coefficients to train a multi-layer perceptron neural network and a support vector machine classifier. We show that incorporation of the Gabor filter coefficients to the feature sets of images could have a significant role in discrimination between clean and altered images. Experimental results show that the proposed method outperforms previous methods, introduced for steganalysis of LSB-matching image steganography, in terms of both discrimination accuracy and feature set dimensionality.
