Singular value decomposition (SVD) is robust and reliable orthogonal matrix decomposition. Due to its conceptual and stability properties, it is becoming more and more popular in signal processing area especially in watermarking. Many watermarking and data hiding researches has struck the use of singular values in casting hidden information into the hosted image. This paper introduces a counterfeiting attack for the existed SVD based watermarking techniques that embed the watermark information…

SVD-Based Approach to Transparent Embedding Data into Digital Images
A new approach to transparent embedding of data into digital images is proposed that provides a high rate of the embedded data and is robust to common and some intentional distortions and can be used both for hidden communication and watermarking.
A SVD-Based Fragile Watermarking Scheme for Image Authentication
A series of methods is proposed for the creation of watermarks at several stages of the design cycle, from high-level design to layout, to minimize the overhead and reduce the impact on performance.
