Abstract

Behind the popularity of multimedia technology, the dispute over image copyright is getting worse. In the digital watermark prevention technology for copyright infringement, watermark technology is considered to be an important technology to overcome data protection problems and verify the relationship between data ownership. Among the many digital watermarking technologies, zero watermarking technology has been favored in recent years. However, the existing zero watermark technology in the implementation process often needs a trusted third party to store watermarks, which may make the data too central, data storage security is low and copyright registration costs are too high, which creates a rare problem. The decentivization and information cannot be tampered of blockchain technology’s nature find new methods for image copyright protection. This paper studies the role of zero watermark algorithm in the image copyright and its complete storage and certification scheme, proposes a zero watermark image protection framework based on blockchain, and builds a system according to the framework. Combined with blockchain and zero watermarking technology, the framework uses inter IPFS (Inter Planetary File System) to solve the problem of blockchain efficient storage and sharing of large files. In addition, the application of user copyright information, image image query and image trading in the system are realized based on smart contracts, which solves the problem of lack of trusted third parties. Experiments show that the scheme is feasible and robust to various attacks.
