  • Current methods of image protection based on chaos encryption can only provide security in Human visual system (HVS) level, however they can not provide usage control when the image is opened, printed or exported. To solve this problem, we proposed a novel image digital rights management scheme for Confidential image data security based on encryption and watermark (CIDSEW) with high-level security, usage control and traceability, in which we employed full content image encryption for confidentiality of the image to be protected, and we firstly proposed strict and detailed Usage control (UC) scheme for Confidential image data (CIData) usage password-based authentication, opening times, printing and exporting control. And when the CIData need to delivery or export to other users or domain, we proposed the secure export and misused tracing and detect approach, in which before the ciphered CIData is exported, we decrypted the CIData in a plain mode, and simultaneously we embedded user-identity-related and hardware-related information as robust watermark for traceability and responsibility confirmation. Finally, we evaluated the proposed CIDSEW by groups of variant size image data for security and efficiency, a large amount of groups of experiments manifest the proposed CIDSEW is secure, efficient, pervasive and robust for confident image data protection, usage control and misuse tracing.
