This paper studies joint security and robustness enhancement of quantization based data embedding for multimedia authentication applications. We present analysis showing that through a lookup table (LUT) of nontrivial run that maps quantized multimedia features randomly to binary data, the detection error probability can be considerably smaller than the traditional quantization embedding. We quantify the security strength of LUT embedding and enhance its robustness through distortion compensation. Introducing a joint security and capacity measure, we show that the proposed distortion compensated LUT embedding provides joint enhancement of security and robustness over the traditional quantization embedding.
