JPSEC for Secure Imaging in JPEG 2000
In this paper, we first review the on-going JPSEC standardization activity. Its goal is to extend the baseline JPEG 2000 specification to provide a standardized framework for secure imaging, in order to support tools needed to secure digital images, such as content protection, data integrity check, authentication, and conditional access control. We then present two examples of JPSEC tools. The first one is a technique for secure scalable streaming and secure transcoding. It allows the protected JPSEC codestream to be transcoded while preserving the protection, i.e. without requiring unprotecting (e.g. decrypting) the codestream. The second one is a technique for conditional access control. It can be used for access control by resolution or quality, but also by regions of interest.
