A Novel Approach to Adaptive Image Authentication

In this paper we address the issue of the trade-off between the tampering rate and the reconstruction quality of image authentication systems. We adopt the fountain coding paradigm and design an adaptive content reconstruction scheme. The scheme conforms the reconstruction quality of individual image fragments both to the local texture properties and to the specified requirements. Experimental evaluation confirms that a framework based on this approach is a valid and convenient model of the performance of the considered reconstruction problem.
