Digital watermarking, copyright protection, web services, and information systems.


The main issue addressed in this paper is the renovation of the architecture of a Cultural Information System (CIS) by utilizing XML Web Services, focusing on long-term preservation and protection. The robust, multi-bit digital image watermarking facility is encapsulated in a Web Service, which is reused by several components of the CIS for signing and identifying copyright protected images. In addition, the CIS is similarly extended to integrate a conventional digital object identification service (Handle System), adhering to the principles of service-oriented architectures.
