Abstract: Encryption and Watermarking are image processing tools that are used mostly separately. Encrypting a document completely obscures it and watermarking is applied mostly for copy right protection. For entertainment type videos, partial encryption and watermarking may be integrated such that both objectives are attained. We report in this paper a novel combined partial encryption and watermarking algorithm for digital videos using chaotic system and support image. Watermarks are generated by using iris information of the authentic user or the authentic producer of the digital video. Watermarks of full size and half size are embedded in the luminance frame (s) of the video using simple LSB steganography. A sequence of color frames is watermarked in two phases, and partially encrypted in two layers, the watermarks considered are encrypted before embedding. The luminance frame (s) is (are) preprocessed before embedding with the watermarks to defy stega-analysis. Chaotic logistic map and a gray level support digital image is used for obtaining unique row/column sequences as well as for generating robust random binary sequences. A support color digital image is used in the first layer encryption of the digital video. Modified Rabinovich 4 dimensional hyper-chaotic system is used for second layer encryption. Encryption algorithm is applied in R, G, B frames separately. The technique may also be applied for integrated encryption and watermarking of digital images.
