Digital watermarking methods describe the technologies that allow hiding of information in digital media such as images, video and audio. Watermarking techniques embed information in images by introducing changes that are imperceptible to the human eye but recoverable by a computer program. Generally, the watermark is a code to identify the owner of the image. The locations in which the watermark is embedded are determined by a secret key. Doing so prevents possible pirates from easily removing

These alterations are referred to as attacks. The first watermarking application that might come to mind is related to copyright protection of digital media Watermarking algorithms have been proposed to protect varieties of content, such as official documents.
