Technical Paper


An improved detection model for spread spectrum image watermarking is developed assuming that compressive measurements of watermarked image are transmitted over multiple channels. A closed form expression of detection threshold in log-likelihood ratio model is derived followed by developing the two optimization problems. First one is to find the optimal number of compressed sensing measurements as the product of the number of channels and the number of samples per channel (bandwidth) under the constraint of a detection reliability and watermarked image power. The second one finds an optimal set of watermarked image measurements (that lead to watermarked image power) under the constraint of a detection reliability. Extensive simulation results are reported to highlight the efficacy of the watermark detector for both the optimization problems. An improvement of \(\sim \) 5.65% in detection performance is observed for 82.35% CS measurements and for a given probability of false alarm value 0.1 on multiplicative (fading) degradation having power 0.7.
