EFFECTIVE ROBUST PATCHWORK METHOD TO THE VULNERABLE ATTACK FOR DIGITAL AUDIO WATERMARKING

Abstract
This paper presents patchwork based digital audio watermarking. The advanced growth in transmission of digital data has resulted in a corresponding elevation in the need for copyright protection of signal. Cryptography and steganography are used for the content protection but do not completely solve the copyright issue. Watermarking is a method to protect and identify the digital data while maintaining the quality of the host media, it permits various types of watermarks to be hidden in audio signal e.g. image, audio and video. This paper limits on image embedding technique using patchwork-based method. In patchwork based method average of all segments of approximate coefficients is calculated for embedding watermark into sound signal. The experimental results shows that proposed method achieves imperceptibility for audio signal as watermarked audio signal is inaudible after embedding watermark and robustness of watermark against different signal processing attacks with higher PSNR. The resulting audio is robust to attacks and exhibits good quality in term of peak signal to noise ratio. The simulation results show the effectiveness of the proposed system.
