Digital watermarking is a technique that embeds additional data into digital contents so that the distortion by embedding them is imperceptible, where the additional data are called watermark. One of the applications of digital watermarking is tamper detection and recovery. The digital watermarking methods for tamper detection and recovery can detect the tampered region in a tampered image and recover it. In this application, the digital watermarking methods solve the problem that digital contents can be tampered so that the falsification is not detected. In this manuscript, we propose a new method for tamper detection and recovery of JPEG images by using a RS code. The proposed method embeds the check symbols corresponding to an information-reduced original image into the LSBs of the quantized DCT coefficients in a JPEG image directly. Therefore the method completely extracts the embedded data from watermarked JPEG images. We investigated the performance of the proposed method in view of the image quality and the ability of tamper detection and recovery. The experiments of the image quality confirmed the imperceptibility of watermarked images and images used for recovery. The experiments of the ability of tamper detection and recovery confirmed the maximum size of recoverable tampered region and the difficulty of undetectable falsification.
