Abstract

The explosive growth of multimedia content on the Internet is revolutionizing the way of multimedia security and copyright management. Unfortunately, the two major technological solu-tions in the past decade, namely encryption and watermarking, are ill-equipped to deal with the change. This article introduces the third solution, i.e., Content-based Multimedia Identification (CBMI). The key idea is to automatically generate a new descriptor from the content, called mediaprint, as the identifier of that media item. Compared with the active protection (i.e., encryption) and authen-tication (i.e., watermarking) approaches, CBMI of-fers a passive but reproducible and reliable ap-proach to manage rights of the digital content.

Presentation Session 1: Content-Based Multimedia Identification: A New Approach for Digital Rights Management

The explosive growth of multimedia content on the Internet is revolutionizing the way of multimedia security and copyright management.

This article introduces the third solution, i.e., Content-based Multimedia Identification (CBMI). The key idea is to automatically generate a new descriptor from the content, called mediaprint, as the identifier of that media item. Compared with the active protection (i.e., encryption) and authen-tication (i.e., watermarking) approaches, CBMI of-fers a passive but reproducible and reliable ap-proach to manage rights of the digital content.
