This paper proposes a novel method to detect Furon's asymmetric watermark by using a correlation detector that is mathematically tractable and simple. The performance of the proposed method is tested under various conditions. The experimental results matched the theoretical results well, showing that the correlation detector can indeed be used for the detection of asymmetric watermark. The proposed detector is aplied to both single and multiple bit embedded watermark. Bit error rate (BER), obtained from the experiment, was compared to the one obtained from the theory. As the embedded information increases, the BER of the Furon's asymmetric watermarking method also increases rapidly.

대표적인 비대칭 워터마킹 방법의 하나의 파워스펙트럼을 이용한 비대칭 워터마킹 방법의 성능을 분석하였다. 파워스펙트럼 도메인의 특성 분석을 통해 간단하면서도 성능 분석에 용이한 상관 검출기를 활용할 수 있음을 보였다. 제안된 상관 검출기를 이용하여 정보량을 늘려가면서 비트 검출 오류율 (bit error rate)을 구하였다. 실험 및 이론 분석 결과는 거의 일치하였으며, 파워스펙트럼 도메인 비대칭 워터마킹 방법은 삽입되는 데이터양이 증가할수록 급격히 그 성능이 나빠지는 것을 확인할 수 있었다.
