This paper presents several watermarking methods preventing the estimation of the secret key by an adversary. The constraints for secure embedding using distribution matching, where the decoding regions rely implicitly on the distribution of the host signal, are first formulated. In order to perform informed coding, different decoding regions are associated with the same message using an appropriate partitioning function. The minimization of the embedding distortion is afterwards casted into an

Depending on the embedding and noise distortions, informed secure coding can outperform classical secure coding or classical insecure coding such as ISS or SCS.
