    Abstract

    This paper presents combined face recognition and watermarking technique to secure a biometric image and maintain the recognition rate. These days, with advanced technology, the biometric data can be stolen and faked which may be used in other applications that utilize the same biometric feature. The discrete cosine transform (DCT) watermarking technique is used to certify the biometric image belong to the legitimate user. We have tested the proposed scheme under several attacks. The results of the experimentations show that the face recognition rate performance almost does not degrade due to watermark embedding and the proposed scheme is robust against several attacks.
