While geometric attacks are one of the most challenging problems in watermarking, random bending is probably the most difficult to handle among all geometric attacks. We present a watermarking scheme based on a new deformable mesh model to combat such attacks. The distortion is corrected using the distortion field (DF) estimated by minimizing the matching error between the meshes of the original and the attacked image. A CDMA watermarking method is used for testing the proposed method, which embeds a multi-bit signature in the DCT domain and uses mesh model correction to achieve robustness. Experiments show that the proposed scheme can survive a wide range of random bending attacks.
