This article presents a watermarking algorithm based on one-dimensional (1-D) chaotic map in wavelet transform (WT) domain. Traditional encryption and watermarking technologies in the WT domain are combined in this algorithm. First, the watermark is encoded by a chaotic sequence, which is generated by a key. On the basis of human visual system (HVS), it is then divided into two parts and embedded into the low- and intermediate-frequency bands of three-layer WT domain. The encryption of the watermark and the choice of embedded areas based on the perceptivity not only confer the watermark with good invisibility but also with good robustness. Meanwhile, it is difficult to decrypt the watermark extracted from the WT domain.
