We propose a novel blind watermarking algorithm, called XFuseMark, which can hide a small, visually meaningful, grayscale logo in a host image instead of using a random-noise-like sequence based on the multiresolution fusion principles, and extract a recognizable version of the embedded logo even without reference to the original host data at the receiving end. XFuseMark is not only secure, i.e., only authorized users holding a private key are able to conduct the logo extraction operation, but also robust against noise addition and image compression. Experiments verify the practical performance of XFuseMark.
