This paper presents a fragile watermarking scheme for authentication of 3D semi-regular meshes. After one wavelet decomposition, the watermark is inserted by slightly modifying the norms and orientations of the obtained wavelet coefficient vectors. The inserted watermark is robust to the so-called content-preserving attacks including vertex reordering and similarity transformations. However, it is vulnerable to others attacks such as local and global geometric modifications and remeshing since

Additionally, according to the watermark extraction result, these attacks can be precisely located on the surface of the attacked mesh in a blind way. Sufficient security level is also achieved by introducing secret keys and by using scalar Costa quantization scheme with appropriate parameter values. Experimental results demonstrate the efficacy of the proposed watermarking scheme.
