Paper Abstract

This paper presents a scheme for estimating two-band amplitude scale attack within a quantization-based watermarking context. Quantization-based watermarking schemes comprise a class of watermarking schemes that achieves the channel capacity in terms of additive noise attacks. Unfortunately, Quantization-based watermarking schemes are not robust against Linear Time Invariant (LTI) filtering attacks. We concentrate on a multi-band amplitude scaling attack that modifies the spectrum of the signal using an analysis/synthesis filter bank. First we derive the probability density function (PDF) of the attacked data. Second, using a simplified approximation of the PDF model, we derive a Maximum Likelihood (ML) procedure for estimating two-band amplitude scaling factor. Finally, experiments are performed with synthetic and real audio signals showing the good performance of the proposed estimation technique under realistic conditions.
