One of the important topics of watermarking technique is a robustness against geometrical transformations. In the previous schemes, a template matching is performed or an additional signal is embedded for the recovery of a synchronization loss. However, the former requires the original template, and the latter degrades the quality of image because both a watermark and a synchronization signal must be embedded. In the proposed scheme only a synchronization signal is embedded for the recovery of both a watermark and a synchronization loss. Then the embedded information depends on the distance between two embedded signal positions. The distance is not changed seriously by random geometrical transformations like StirMark attack unless the embedded signal is disturbed. Therefore, a watermark can be extracted correctly from such geometrically transformed image if the synchronization signal can be recovered.
