A technique using the inherent feature map of the underlying image as the watermark is proposed in this work. First, the binary feature map is extracted as watermark and partitioned into blocks. Secondly, neighboring feature map block are blended and encrypted for insertion. On the receiver side, the feature map from the received image is extracted again and compared against the recovered watermark to verify the integrity and authenticity. In addition the capability of detecting geometric transformation, removal of original objects and addition of foreign objects, the proposed scheme is also capable of localizing tampering and detecting cropping without a priori knowledge about the image.
