Abstract:

With the progress of the information technology, the network has brought great convenience to different areas of production and life. The security of multimedia data is one of the keys to the use of the network. Digital watermarking is a kind of information security technology that transmits the watermark without being perceived on Human Visual System (HVS). Least Significant Bit (LSB) is currently the more commonly used replacement method in image steganography. The paper proposes a watermarking technology based on LSB replacement and improves the Henon map. The main design principle is to obtain a smaller modification on the cover image. The proposed method encrypts the watermark with the improved Henon (IHenon) map and Logistic map before the watermark is embedded into the carrier, which improves the security and efficiency of information. The encryption simulation experiment shows that the scheme has a better scrambling effect than the original scheme, and the improved LSB algorithm effectively improves the quality.

Keywords:

Human Visual System (HVS), Digital watermarking, Least Significant Bit (LSB), Henon map, Logistic map.
