Paper Abstract

This paper describes a new kind of use for image watermarking. A stream watermarking method is presented, in which a key allows the authorized users to recover the original image. Our algorithm exploits the redundancy properties of the Mojette Transform. This transform is based on a specific discrete version of the Radon transform with an exact inversion. Anyone whom knows the watermark key will be able to decode the original image whereas only a marked image can be decoded without this key. The presented algorithm is suitable for different applications when fragile and reversible watermarks are mandatory such as medical image watermarking, and it could also be used for a data access scheme (cryptography). A multiscale watermark variation is presented and can be used when different user profile levels are encountered.
