In this paper, we consider the problem of digital watermarking to ensure the credibility of multimedia. We specifically address the problem of fragile digital watermarking for the tamper proofing of still images. Applications of our problem include authentication for courtroom evidence, insurance claims, and journalistic photography. We present a novel(More)
Security concerns increase as the technology for falsification advances. There are strong evidences that a difficult to falsify biometric trait, the human heartbeat, can be used for identity recognition. Existing solutions for biometric recognition from electrocardiogram (ECG) signals are based on temporal and amplitude distances between detected fiducial(More)
We present a novel technique for the digital watermarking of still images based on the concept of multiresolution wavelet fusion. The algorithm is robust to a variety of signal distortions. The original unmarked image is not required for watermark extraction. We provide analysis to describe the behaviour of the method for varying system parameter values. We(More)
This paper addresses non-Gaussian statistical modeling of interference as a superposition of a large number of small effects from terminals/scatterers distributed in the plane/volume according to a Poisson point process. This problem is relevant to multiple access communication systems without power control and radar. Assuming that the signal strength is(More)
This paper presents a novel robust watermarking approach called FuseMark based on the principles of image fusion for copy protection or robust tagging applications. We consider the problem of logo watermarking in still images and employ multiresolution data fusion principles for watermark embedding and extraction. A human visual system model based on(More)
In this paper, we present a novel blind deconvolution technique for the restoration of linearly degraded images without explicit knowledge of either the original image or the point spread function. The technique applies to situations in which the scene consists of a finite support object against a uniformly black, grey, or white background. This occurs in(More)
promising results suggest distinctiveness and long-term stability of the ECG as a biometric. Security concerns increase as the technology for Previously proposed ECG recognition techniques [1-4] falsification advances. There are strong evidences that a rely heavily on one major step to extract feature vectors: use difficult to falsify biometric, the human(More)
We present an approach for still image watermarking in which the watermark embedding process employs multiresolution fusion techniques and incorporates a model of the human visual system (HVS). The original unmarked image is required to extract the watermark. Simulation results demonstrate the high robustness of the algorithm to such image degradations as(More)
Blind image deconvolution: theory and applications Images are ubiquitous and indispensable in science and everyday life. Mirroring the abilities of our own human visual system, it is natural to display observations of the world in graphical form. Images are obtained in areas 1 2 Blind Image Deconvolution: problem formulation and existing approaches ranging(More)
Accurate channel estimates are needed in orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM), and easily obtained under the assumption of perfect phase and frequency synchronization. However, the practical receiver encounters nonnegligible phase noise (PHN) and carrier frequency offset (CFO), which create substantial intercarrier interference that a(More)
