Abstract

Due to the advancements on multimedia and communication technologies, multimedia assets are vulnerable to illegitimate manipulations and replications. To address this type of problem, ownership identification as an effective application of digital watermarking is a key solution. However, among illegitimate operations, geometric attacks are much more severe which most watermarking techniques particularly the spatial domain watermarking approaches are encountered with. In this paper, an experimental investigation performed to study the resiliency of the latest robust spatial domain watermarking techniques in the face of different geometric attacks. The experimental investigation revealed that the techniques which used only a direct correlation approach for ownership identification could not identify the owner of the watermarked image after rotation and skewing attacks. In contrast, the technique that used a mixed approach, namely approximation and direct correlation, was successful to identify the owner of the watermarked image even after such geometric attacks.
