Audio watermarking, Information hiding, Copyright protection, Multiple Scrambling
The audio watermarking involves the concealment of data within a discrete audio file. Audio watermarking technology affords an opportunity to generate copies of a recording which are perceived by listeners as identical to the original but which may differ from one another on the basis of the embedded information. A highly confidential audio watermarking scheme using multiple scrambling is presented Superior to other audio watermarking techniques, the proposed scheme is self-secured by integrating multiple scrambling operations into the embedding stage. To ensure that unauthorized detection without correct secret keys is nearly impossible, the watermark is encrypted by a coded-image; certain frames are randomly selected from the total frames of the audio signal for embedding and their order of coding is further randomized. Adaptive synchronization is improves the robustness against hazardous synchronization attacks, such as random samples cropping/inserting and pitch-invariant time stretching. The efficient watermarking schemes make it impossible to be detected and robust even though the watermarking algorithm is open to the public.
