Mosaic-based Privacy-protection with Reversible Watermarking

Yuichi Kusama, Hyunho Kang, Keiichi Iwamura

Abstract

Video surveillance has been applied to many fields, specifically for detecting suspicious activity in public places such as shopping malls. As the use of video-surveillance cameras increases, so too does the threat to individual privacy. Therefore, video-surveillance technologies that protect individual privacy must be implemented. In this study, we propose a scheme in an MPEG2 video-encoding environment that successfully employs mosaicking, encryption, and restoration of faces captured in videos.
