We propose a new method for distributing a common key to a dynamic group over an unreliable channel. In [15], an unconditionally secure "self-healing" protocol that solves this problem and has significant advantages over previous work in this area is presented. However, the protocol suffers from inconsistent robustness, high overhead and expensive(More)
We present a semi-public key implementation of quantiza-tion index modulation (QIM) watermarking called Secure QIM (SQIM). Given a signal, a watermark detector can learn the presence of an SQIM watermark without learning anything anything else from the detection process. The watermark detector first transforms the signal with a secret transform, unknown to(More)
We introduce a new transform called the randlet transform and explore applications to universal perceptual image hashing (key-based randomized digests) and image identification. Our transform yields robust signal representations that are nearly invariant to several perceptually insignificant transformations (attacks, intentional or otherwise). Our signal(More)
Text sifting is a method of quickly and securely identifying documents for database searching, copy detection , duplicate email detection and plagiarism detection. A small amount of text is extracted from a document using hash functions and is used as the document's fingerprint. We build upon previous work by Broder et al. [4, 5] and Heintze [8],(More)
Threefold administration of 3-hydroxypyridine derivatives emoxipine and mexidol in optimal doses corresponding to the therapeutic dose range for humans produced an anxiolytic effect and stimulated risk behavior in the elevated plus maze test in rats. These effects were most pronounced after injection of 3-hydroxypyridine derivative emoxipine. Combination of(More)
Protective action of 3-oxypiridine and succinic acid derivatives (emoxipin, reamberin and mexidol) was studied in mice under acute alloxan-induced intoxication conditions. All these drugs exhibited protective action with respect to hyperglycemia and hyperglycemia-connected elongation of desperate behavior in the tail-suspension test and reduced activity(More)
