Database relations are widely used over the Internet. Since these data can be easily tampered with, it is critical to ensure the integrity of these data. In this paper, we propose to make use of fragile watermarks to detect malicious alterations made to a database relation. The proposed scheme is distortion free, unlike other watermarking schemes which inevitably introduce distortions to the cover data. In our algorithm, the watermark is calculated from the linear feedback shift register generating values of the key. Watermarks are embedded and verified in database independently and hence any modifications can be detected. © 2012 Springer-Verlag GmbH Berlin Heidelberg.
