Text Watermarking Technique For Hindi Language Documents Using Structural Approach

[Full Text]

Authorship, Copyright, Devanagari, Pratyaya, Robust, Structural Approach



The ease of availability of Internet in recent decades for sharing ideas and knowledge has motivated authors to publish their contents digitally instead of conventional paperwork. This leads to widespread availability of the author's information to a large volume of readers. But with this global connectivity, many security issues have raised threats to authorship and copyright of genuine authors. The digital contents are vulnerable to illegal copy, distribution, reproduction and authentication. For digital information in numerous natural languages, significant attempts have been made to secure the text from unauthentic access. Each of these concentrate on distinguished language construct(s) to attain uniqueness. In this paper we propose a new robust watermarking technique for Hindi language. Hindi belongs to Devanagari script and no watermarking technique for it is developed till now. We use pratyaya as important Hindi language construct in our structural approach to protect Hindi language digital text across the globe
