Arobust wavelet-based blind technique for color image watermarking is proposed denoted as color image
watermarking using self-embedded color permissibility (CIW-SECP) is proposed. CIW-SECP technique is
based on embedding two watermarks in a spread-spectrum fashion in the U and V planes of the YUV
color space. The watermark weights are generated based on the so-called ?color permissibility? of the U
and V planes. These weights are generated and self-embedded in the relative U and V planes based on the
color characteristics of the image under question. Experimental results have shown that the CIW-SECP
technique exhibits very high imperceptibility (PSNR?[71.21?85.95] dB) as well as superior performance
against most prominent attacks.
