In recent years, the reversible data hiding techniques also known as lossless or invertible data hiding, has gradually become a very active research area. The reversibility of these schemes makes possible to extract the embedded data without errors, as well as to restore the cover medium to its original state. Furthermore, to guarantee the security and confidentiality of the hidden data and the image, reversible data hiding schemes over encrypted domain are presented as a promising solution to solve several issues of information security. This paper presents a study case of reversible data hiding schemes over encrypted domain oriented to the protection of the sharing and distribution of color images hosted in cloud storage services. The experimental results are presented in terms of imperceptibility, capacity, confidentiality, and visual quality, respectively.
