In this paper, the authors propose a novel scheme for securing and authenticating digital data. Although, the experiments were applied to digital images, it is valid for sound, and video without any modifications of the core scheme. The developed scheme could be applied to the encoded data at the sender and the receiver sides, apart from the compression and decompression processes. The watermark information is generated automatically from the input data and hidden into the Least Significant Bits (LSBs) of specified pixels according to innovative criteria. Experimentally, the received data is authenticated if it is 100% match the sent data, exposing both geometric and signal processing attacks.
