Conventional digital signature schemes for image authentication encode the signature in a file separate from the original image, thus require extra bandwidth to transmit it. Meanwhile, the watermark technique embeds some information in the host image. In this paper, a combined digital watermark and digital signature scheme for image authentication is proposed. The scheme extracts signatures from the original image and embeds them back into the image as watermarks avoiding additional signature files. Since images are always compressed before transmission in the Internet, the proposed scheme is tested for compression tolerance and shows good robustness against JPEG coding. Furthermore, the scheme not only can verify the authenticity and the integrity of images, but also can locate illegal modifications
