A New Fragile Watermarking Scheme Based on Wavelet Edge Feature

Krisda Khankasikam
Abstract—An image watermarking is the process of authenticating a digital image by embedding a watermark into it and protecting the image from copyright violation. This paper proposes a new fragile watermarking scheme developed in a wavelet domain based on the discrete wavelet transform and Arnold scrambling algorithm. The original watermark image is transformed into wavelet domain by applying discrete wavelet transform, subsequently the high frequency coefficients which in form of an edge feature image of wavelet transformed image is transformed into binary watermark image by using thresholding method. The binary watermark image is embedded into host image by modifying Arnold scrambling algorithm. The proposed method encompasses three phases including watermark generation phase, watermark embedding phase and tamper detection and localization phase. Experimental results show that the proposed method has satisfactory protection ability and can detect and locate various malicious tampering efficiently. The invisibleness and robustness of the propose method is evaluated by using well known indices including peak signal to noise ratio index and normalized correlation index.

Index Terms—Arnold scrambling, discrete wavelet transform, edge feature image, fragile watermarking scheme, tamper detection.
