Abstract

Biometric watermarking was introduced as the synergistic integration of biometrics and digital watermarking technology. This paper proposes a novel biometric watermarking technique, which embeds offline handwritten signature in host image for copyright protection. We propose to combine the conventional LSB-based and DWT-based watermarking techniques into a unison framework, which is known as LSB-DWT in this paper. The proposed LSB-DWT technique is evaluated against various simulated security attacks, i.e. JPEG compression, Gaussian low-pass filtering, median filtering, Gaussian noise, scaling, rotation and cropping. The experimental results demonstrate that the proposed LSB-DWT technique exhibits remarkable watermark imperceptibility and watermark robustness.
