Robust hashing for multimedia authentication is an emerging research area. A novel key-dependent robust speech hashing based on speech production model is proposed in this letter. Robust hash is calculated based on linear spectrum frequencies (LSFs) which model the vocal tract. The correlation between LSFs is decoupled by discrete cosine transformation (DCT). A randomization scheme controlled by a secret key is applied in hash generation for random feature selection. The hash function is key-dependent and collision resistant. Meanwhile, it is highly robust to content preserving operations as well as having high accuracy of tampering localization.
