A watermarking system is secure as long as it satisfies Kerckhoffs principle according to the cryptography. In this letter, two novel techniques named the encrypted orthogonal transformation and its improved scheme as useful preprocessing methods are presented to apply to the watermarking field, which can enhance the security of the watermarking scheme. Compared to discrete cosine transform watermarking algorithms, this method has similar robustness but higher security.
