Paper Abstract

Watermarking techniques have been considerably improved for the last past years, aiming at being always more resistant to attacks. In fact, if the main goal of watermarking at the beginning was to secure digital data (audio, image and video), numerous attacks are still now able to cast doubts on the owner's authenticity ; we can distinguish three different groups of attacks : these one which consist to remove the watermark, these one which aim at impairing the data sufficiently to falsify the detection, and finally these one which try to alter the detection process so that another person becomes the apparent owner of the data. By considering the growing development of always more efficient attacks, this paper firstly presents a recent and exhaustive review of attacks in image and video watermarking. In a second part, the consequences of still image watermarking attacks on video sequences will be outlined and a particular attention will be given to the recently created benchmarks : Stirmark, the benchmark proposed by the University of Geneva Vision Group, this one proposed by the Department of Informatics of the University of Thessaloniki and finally we will speak of the current work of the European Project Certimark ; we will present a comparison of these various benchmarks and show how difficult it is to develop a self-sufficient benchmark, especially because of the complexity of intentional attacks.
