Spread Spectrum (SS) modulation principle has been widely used in digital watermarking due to its distinguishing characteristics viz. excellent security and robustness in performance. The use of wide spectrum of the host signal in message hiding process puts a limit on the data rate subject to a given embedding distortion. In SS communication the use of M–(More)
Quantization index modulation (QIM) watermarking proposed by Chen and Wornell provides computational efficient blind watermarking based on Costa's dirty paper codes. The limitation of this is its vulnerability against amplitude scaling distortion. The present work is proposed to solve this problem based on angle QIM within spread transform dither modulation(More)
Presently the WWW phenomenon has brought the world in to the personal computer. Digital media is thereby given high priority. But this has increased the frequency of security breach of intellectual properties. Therefore copyright protections and content integrity verification are highly recommended. What we need is newer data hiding techniques that must be(More)
The current paper presents a robust watermarking method for still images, which uses the similarity of discrete wavelet transform and human visual system (HVS). The proposed scheme makes the use of pixel wise masking in order to make binary watermark imperceptible to the HVS. The watermark is embedded in the perceptually significant, spatially selected(More)
Spread Spectrum modulation has become a preferred paradigm in many watermarking applications. This paper analyzes the performance of such a blind watermarking scheme under discrete wavelet frame rather than a traditional orthonormal wavelet expansion. The over complete representation offered by the redundant frame facilitates the identification of(More)
In this paper, a new approach to Spread Spectrum (SS) watermarking technique is introduced. This problem is particularly interesting in the field of modern multimedia applications like internet when copyright protection of digital image is required. The approach exploits two-predecessor single attractor (TPSA) cellular automata (CA) suitability to work as(More)
Screening of microscopic slides is a manual process which involves its subjectivity. A semi-automated computer based system can contribute to the detection of screening error by the way of greater reliability. The objective of segmentation in microscopic image is to extract cellular, nuclear and tissue components. This problem is challenging because(More)
Digital steganography or data hiding has emerged as a new area of research in connection to the communication in secured channel as well as intellectual property protection for multimedia signals. The redundancy in image representation can be exploited successfully to embed specified characteristic information with a good quality of imperceptibility. The(More)
The chaotic systems have been found applications in diverse fields such as pseudo random number generator, coding, cryptography, spread spectrum (SS) communications etc. The inherent capability of generating a large space of PN sequences due to sensitive dependence on initial conditions has been the main reason for exploiting chaos in spread spectrum(More)
This paper proposes an oblivious watermarking algorithm with blind detection approach for high volume data hiding in image signals. We present a detection reliable signal adaptive embedding scheme for multiple messages in selective sub-bands of wavelet (DWT) coefficients using direct sequence spread spectrum (DS-SS) modulation technique. Here the impact of(More)
