In this paper, a novel fragile watermarking method based on clonal selection algorithm (CSA), CLONALG, is presented. In Discrete Cosine Transform (DCT) based fragile watermarking techniques, there occurs some degree of rounding errors because of the conversion of real numbers into integers in the process of transformation of image from frequency domain to spatial domain. In this paper, the rounding errors caused by this transformation process are corrected by using CLONALG. Simulation results show that extracted watermark is obtained exactly the same as embedded watermark and optimum watermarked image transparency is achieved. In addition, the performance comparison of CLONALG and genetic algorithm (GA) based methods is realized.
