Multimedia contents can be copied and manipulated without quality degradation. Therefore, they are vulnerable to digital forgery and illegal distribution. In these days, with increasing the importance of multimedia security, various multimedia security techniques are studied. In this paper, we propose a content authentication algorithm based on reversible watermarking which supports JPEG compression commonly used for multimedia contents. After splitting image blocks, a specific authentication code for each block is extracted and embedded into the quantized coefficients on JPEG compression which are preserved against lossy processing. At a decoding process, the watermarked JPEG image is authenticated by extracting the embedded code and restored to have the original image quality. To evaluate the performance of the proposed algorithm, we analyzed image quality and compression ratio on various test images. The average PSNR value and compression ratio of the watermarked JPEG image were 33.13dB and 90.65%, respectively, whose difference with the standard JPEG compression were 2.44dB and 1.63%.
