Digital watermarking technique for copyright protection and prevention of illegal copy and distribution can provide the reliable transaction to both buyer and seller in e-commerce through the cryptographic protocol such as 'Buyer-seller watermarking protocol'. Recently there has been researched about some cryptographic protocols for watermarking system but there has no yet mentioned about the implementation of practical watermarking technique in protocol. This paper presents the watermark embedding technique based on POCS in buyer-seller watermarking protocol. The proposed method designs the robust convex set based on EZW and the invisible convex set using PSNR and then projects into two sets until the convergence condition is satisfied. Experimental results verified that BER of watermark that is embedded by the proposed method has lower 0.02-0.10 than BER of the conventional method.
