Digital fingerprints are unique labels inserted in different copies of the same content before distribution. Eachdigital fingerprint is assigned to an intended recipient, and can be used to trace the culprits who use their content
for unintended purposes. Attacks mounted by multiple users, known as collusion attacks, provide a cost-effective
method for attenuating the identifying fingerprint from each colluder, thus collusion poses a real challenge to
protect the digital media data and enforce usage policies. This paper examines a few major design methodologies
for collusion-resistant fingerprinting of multimedia, and presents a unified framework that helps highlight the
common issues and the uniqueness of different fingerprinting techniques.
