In this paper, a novel Commutative Watermarking and Partial Encryption (CWPE) algorithm based on Discrete Wavelet Transform and Discrete Cosine Transform (DWT-DCT) for watermarking and Multi-Map Wavelet Chaotic Encryption (MMW-CE) is proposed. The original host image is first decomposed into four sub-bands using (DWT), each sub-band coefficients are relocated using Arnold transform to create a noise like version, then apply partial encryption scheme using chaotic scrambled random number pattern bitwise XOR with the scrambled horizontal coefficients only and the shuffled approximation coefficients are divided into non-overlapping and equal sized blocks.
