The watermarking itself + relies on the discrete Fourier transform (DFT) of the image, of video + frames or of three dimensional chunks of video scene. Two kinds of + information are hidden in the digital data: a watermark and a template. + Both are encoded using an owner key to ensure the system security + and are embedded in the 2D or 3D DFT magnitude of the image or video. + The watermark is encoded in the form of a spread spectrum signal. + The template is a key based grid and is used to detect and invert + the effect of an affine geometric transformation (rotations, scaling + and/or aspect ratio change) or in the case of the video frame-rate + changes, aspect-ratio modification and rescaling of frames. It is + shown that, for the spread spectrum signal described in the paper, + it is possible to positively detect the presence of a watermark without + necessarily decoding it, given only the key used to generate it. + To do that, the Bayesian approach allows the deduction of the relative + log-probability of the presence of a watermark in an image given + only the key.

Therefore, digital + audio, image and video watermarking has recently become a very active + area of research. Many important issues have been pointed out, one + of them being the robustness to non-intentional and intentional attacks. + This paper studies some attacks and proposes countermeasures applied + to videos. General attacks are lossy copying/​transcoding (such as + MPEG compression and digital/​analogic conversion),​ changes of frame-rate, + changes of display format, and geometrical distortions. More specific + attacks are sequence edition, and statistical attacks such as averaging + or collusion. Averaging attack consists of the local averaging of + consecutive frames in order to cancel the watermark. This attack + works well for schemes which embed random independent marks into + frames. In collusion attacks the watermark is first estimated by + averaging frames from different scenes, and is then substracted from + each frame. Collusion works well when the same mark was embedded + in all frames. The proposed countermeasure first ensures robustness + to general attacks by Spread Spectrum encoding of the watermark in + the frequency domain and by the use of an additional synchronization + template. Secondly, a Bayesian criterion which evaluates the probability + of a correctly decoded watermark, is used for the rejection the of + outliers, that is of incorrect watermarks. This Bayesian approach + also allows to resit to statistical attacks. The idea is to embed + randomly chosen marks among a finite set of marks, into subsequences + of videos which are long enough to resist averaging attacks, but + short enough to avoid collusion attacks. The Bayesian criterion is + needed to select the correct mark at the decoding step.

While a myriad + of algorithms have appeared in recent years, a number of problems + remain. In this thesis we develop methods for robustly embedding + and extracting 60 to 100 bits of information from an image. These + bits can be used to link a buyer and a seller to a given image and + consequently be used for copyright protection. When embedding the + watermark,​ a fundamental tradeoff must be made between robustness, + visibility and capacity. Robustness refers to the fact that the watermark + must survive against attacks from potential pirates. Visibility refers + to the requirement that the watermark be imperceptible to the eye. + Finally, capacity refers to the amount of information that the watermark + must carry. We present 2 fundamentally different approaches. The + first approach is based on the Discrete Fourier Transform (DFT), + the magnitude of which is used for embedding bits. Affine transformations + on an image lead to corresponding affine transformations in the DFT + which suggests that the DFT can be used to recover watermarks which + have undergone such transformations. We propose the use of a template + consisting of peaks in the DFT domain. If the image is transformed,​ + the peaks are detected and the transformation is detected by solving + a point matching problem. In order to ensure that the watermark is + invisible,​ a noise visibility function is calculated in the spatial + domain and after the embedding is performed in the DFT domain, the + pixels are modulated in the spatial domain to ensure invisibility. + Our results indicate that the proposed method successfully recovers + watermarks from transformed images, but is relatively weak against + compression and cropping. In recent years it has been recognized + that embedding information in a transform domain leads to more robust + watermarks. A major difficulty in watermarking in a transform domain + lies in the fact that constraints on the allowable distortion at + any pixel are usually specified in the spatial domain. Consequently + the second approach consists of a general framework for optimizing + the watermark strength in the trans- form domain when the visibility + constraints are specified in the spatial domain. The main idea is + to structure the watermark embedding as a linear programming prob- + lem in which we wish to maximize the strength of the watermark subject + to a set of linear constraints on the pixel distortions as determined + by a masking function. We consider the special cases of embedding + in the DCT domain and wavelet domainusing the Haar wavelet and Daubechies + 4-tap filter in conjunction with a masking function based on a non-stationary + Gaussian model, but the algorithm is applicable to any combination + of transform and masking functions. Unfortunately the algorithm is + not applicable to the DFT since the computational complexity of global + transfor- mations is overwhelming. Our results indicate that the + proposed approach performs well against lossy compression such as + JPEG and other types of filtering which do not change the geometry + of the image, however at this time the watermark cannot be recovered + from images which have undergone an affine transformation. As a second + aspect of the thesis we also develop robust evaluation methods. This + consists of two parts. Firstly we develop a new approach for evaluating + watermark visibility based on the Watson metric. The results indicate + that the perceptual quality as measured by the Watson metric is consistently + more accurate than that provided by the typically used PSNR criterion. + We also define a new benchmark consisting of attacks which take into + account prior information about the watermark and the image. These + attacks are much more powerful than the ones available in other bench- + marking tools which do not use prior information,​ but rather perform + general image processing operations. Our results relative tothe proposed + benchmark indicate that the optimized non-linear embedding approach + we developed performs markedly better than existing commercial software + which suggests that future research should consist of pursuing these + lines rather than the linear additive watermarking paradigm dealt + with in the bulk of the literature.},​ + url = { http://​vision.unige.ch/​publications/​postscript/​2000/​Pereira_thesis2000.pdf},​ + url1 = { http://​vision.unige.ch/​publications/​postscript/​2000/​Pereira_thesis2000.ps.gz},​ + vgclass = {thesis}, + vgproject = {watermarking} + } + @INPROCEEDINGS{VG:​POD1999,​ + author = {Shelby Pereira and Joe J.

Dans ce chapitre, la description des caract\'​eristiques + de couleur et de texture utilis\'​ees dans le syst\eme et la mani\ere + de calculer la similarit\'​e entre une image d'une requ\^ete et les + images de la base donn\'​ees sont abord\'​ees. \item La sp\'​ecification + d'un protocole de communication pour l'​\'​echange de messages entre + la base de donn\'​ees et une interface utilisateur graphique. Diff\'​erents + types de messages sont d\'​ecrits et la grammaire du protocole de + communication est sp\'​ecifi\'​ee. \item L'​introduction de la grammaire + avec les outils de compilation JavaCup et JLex pour le langage Java + et avec les outils Yacc et Lex pour le langage C++. La mani\ere + de g\'​en\'​erer les analyseurs syntaxiques et lexicaux correspondants + \a la grammaire avec ces outils est d\'​ecrite. Du fait que JavaCup + et Jlex sont moins connus que Lex et Yacc, une explication plus d\'​etaill\'​ee + de ces outils est donn\'​ee dans ce chapitre. \item La mani\ere de + construire l'​interface graphique de l'​utilisateur et une description + de ses diff\'​erentes fonctionnalit\'​es. On explique dans ce chapitre + la mani\ere d'​implanter l'​interface afin de communiquer avec un + serveur li\'e \a la base de donn\'​ees et d'​analyser les messages + du protocole de communication. \item L'​archivage des images dans + une structure de donn\'​ees appel\'​ee "​Inverted File" ou fichier invers\'​e. + Cette structure est d\'​ecrite dans ce chapitre ainsi que la mani\ere + d'​implanter le serveur de la base de donn\'​ees afin de communiquer + avec l'​interface et d'​analyser les messages du protocole de communication. + \end{itemize} Apr\es ces chapitres, des r\'​esultats de requ\^etes + de recherche d'​images similaires sont pr\'​esent\'​es afin de les comparer + aux r\'​esultats d'​autres syst\emes.},​ + url = {http://​vision.unige.ch/​publications/​postscript/​99/​Raki_diploma.ps.gz},​ + url1 = {http://​vision.unige.ch/​publications/​postscript/​99/​Raki_diploma.pdf} + } + @MISC{VG:​Rak1997,​ + vgclass = {licence}, + vgproject = {cbir}, + author = {J.
