Abstract

The recent proliferation of digital multimedia content has raised concerns about authentication mechanisms for multimedia data. A number of authentication techniques based on digital watermarks have been proposed in the literature. In this paper we examine the security of the Yeung-Mintzer authentication watermarking technique. We show that under some conditions the Yeung-Mintzer technique is susceptible to impersonation attacks. We then propose some simple modifications to the technique that make it more robust against substitution and impersonation attacks.
