Research for Robust Watermarking Algorithm Using Least Significant Bit


Article Preview

An image watermarking algorithm using Least Significant Bit is presented. Firstly, Logistic chaotic map is utilized to generate embedding bits for the watermark. Then, the discrete cosine transform is performed on the host image, and the hiding bit is embedded in the coefficient of discrete cosine transform by replacing Least Significant Bit, which causes minimal distortion of the host image.The original host image is not required when extracting the watermark . Experimental results show that the watermarked image almost has no difference from the original host image, and the quality of the extracted image is satisfying, the capacity of this algorithm is high. This algorithm is robust to many attacks, such as noise attack, JPEG Compression attack. Introduction
