The recent growth of network multimedia systems has increased the need for the protection of digital media. This is particularly important for the protection and enhancement of intellectual property rights. The ubiquity of digital media in Internet and digital library applications has called for new methods in digital copyright protection and new measures in data security. Digital watermarking techniques have been developed to meet the needs for these growing concerns and have become active areas of research. A new scheme for robust, high-quality embedded audio coding is presented in this paper, in which the effect of different attacks is taken into account and the trap strategy is designed. Trap strategy can assure that if the strong attack can removes the watermark embedded in audio, it destroys the watermarked audio as well, or else the watermark can be detected with very high response. Watermarks are embedded by quantizing audio's DCT coefficients using the trap strategy and extracted by different ways due to different attacks. The binary image used as watermark is embedded to audio pieces. De-synchronization attacks can be resisted in this algorithm, such as random clipping some audio samples, A/D and D/A conversion, low-pass filtering and so on. The extracted watermark can be identified directly. Compared with the former algorithm (cocktail watermarking) in the method, watermark is blind detected with a very high detector response. Experimental results demonstrate that this audio watermarking scheme is remarkably effective.
