We present a secure and robust image watermarking scheme that uses combined reversible DWT-DCT-SVD transformations to increase integrity, authentication, and confidentiality. The proposed scheme uses two different kinds of watermarking images: a reversible watermark, W1, which is used for verification (ensuring integrity and authentication aspects); and a second one, W2, which is defined by a logo image that provides confidentiality. Our proposed scheme is shown to be robust, while its performances are evaluated with respect to the peak signal-to-noise ratio (PSNR), signal-to-noise ratio (SNR), normalized cross-correlation (NCC), and running time. The robustness of the scheme is also evaluated against different attacks, including a compression attack and Salt & Pepper attack.

    In this paper, the relationship between the uniformity measure ( U) and the Taguchi signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) for parameter design (or robust design) is investigated with a focus on the deposition process. For the static parameter design, it can be easily shown that U is directly related to...
