Imagine the following situation. You're in your car, listening to the radio and suddenly you hear a song that catches your attention. It's the best new song you have heard for a long time, but you missed the announcement and don't recognize the artist. Still, you would like to know more about this music. What should you do? You could call the radio station,(More)
Recent research has shown that network coding can be used in content distribution systems to improve the speed of downloads and the robustness of the systems. However, such systems are very vulnerable to attacks by malicious nodes, and we need to have a signature scheme that allows nodes to check the validity of a packet without decoding. In this paper, we(More)
This paper proposes a high capacity reversible image watermarking scheme based on integer-to-integer wavelet transforms. The proposed scheme divides an input image into nonoverlapping blocks and embeds a watermark into the high-frequency wavelet coefficients of each block. The conditions to avoid both underflow and overflow in the spatial domain are derived(More)
With the ever-increasing use of multimedia contents through electronic commerce and on-line services, the problems associated with the protection of intellectual property, management of large database and indexation of content are becoming more prominent. Watermarking has been considered as efficient means to these problems. Although watermarking is a(More)
A novel binary audio fingerprint obtained by filtering and then quantizing the spectral centroids is proposed. A feature selection algorithm, coined pairwise boosting (PB), is used to determine the filters and quantizers by casting the fingerprinting problem of identifying a query audio clip into a binary classification problem. The PB algorithm selects the(More)
— This paper proposes a video fingerprinting method based on a novel binary fingerprint obtained using a feature selection algorithm called the symmetric pairwise boosting (SPB). The binary fingerprints are obtained by filtering and quantiz-ing perceptually significant features extracted from an input video clip. The SPB algorithm, which is a generalization(More)
An audio fingerprint is a compact content-based signature that summarizes an audio recording. Audio Fingerprinting technologies have attracted attention since they allow the identification of audio independently of its format and without the need of meta-data or watermark embedding. Other uses of fingerprinting include: integrity verification, watermark(More)
