  • 4. WatermarkWhat is Watermarking? “Watermarking can be considered as a special technique of Steganography where one message is embedded in another and the two messages are related to each other in some way. “Example :- The presence of specific patterns in currency notes which are visible only when the note is held to light is a well known example for watermark.

  • 6. Digital Watermarking is originated from Steganography
  • 7. Digital WatermarkWhat is Digital Watermarking? “Digital watermarking is similar to watermarking physical objects, except that the watermarking technique is used for digital content instead of physical objects. “
  • 8. Digital Watermark In digital watermarking a low-energy signal is imperceptibly embedded in another signal. The low-energy signal is called watermark. The main signal in which the watermark is embedded is referred to as cover signal since it covers the watermark. An entity called watermark key used for embedding and detecting watermark signal Watermark key is private

  • 13. Types of Digital Watermarking Robust & Fragile Watermarking Visible & Invisible Watermarking Public & Private Watermarking Asymmetric & Symmetric Watermarking Steganograhic & Non-Steganographic watermarking
  • 14. Robust & Fragile Watermarking Robust Watermarking:-Modification of watermarked content will not affect watermark Fragile Watermarking:-Watermark get destroyed when watermarked content is modified or tampered with
  • 15. Visible & Invisible Watermarking On Visible watermarking, contents are visible
  • 16. Visible & Invisible Watermarking (Contn..) Invisible watermarking are not viewed on just looking
  • 17. Public & Private Watermarking• Public Watermarking Users of content are authorized to detect watermark• Private Watermarking Users not authorized to detect watermark
  • 18. Asymmetric & Symmetric watermarking In Asymmetric watermarking different keys used for embedding and detecting watermark
  • 19. Asymmetric & Symmetric watermarking (Contn..) In symmetric watermarking same keys are used for embedding and detecting watermarks
  • 20. Steganographic & Non- Steganographic Watermarking Steganographic Watermarking User unaware of the presence of a watermark eg:-Used in finger printing applications Non-Steganographic WM:- User aware of the presence of a watermark. e.g.:-User to detect piracy
  • 21. Digital Watermarking Techniques LSB Watermarking Color Separation Technique Bit Stream Watermarking Word Space Coding, Line Space Coding &Character Coding
  • 22. Applications of Digital Watermarking. Copy Protection Content Authentication Copyright Protection Metadata Tagging
