A Fingerprint-Based Digital Images Watermarking for Identity Authentication

Wioletta Wójtowicz


In this paper the combination of fingerprint verification methods with watermarkingtechnology to provide copyright protection and authentication of digital images is proposed. The goalof this study is to investigate how watermarking processing affects the quality of biometric watermarks.Performed experiments showed that extracted fingerprint images have roughly equal verification performance even if some watermarked images undergo additional degradation. Proposed methodologywill be improved using more sophisticated fingerprint verification methods and subsequently incorporated into multimodal watermarking schemes.
