Summary With the ease of distribution of digital images, there is a growing concern for copyright control and authentication. While there are many existing watermarking and data hiding methods for natural images, almost none can be applied to halftone images. In this paper, we proposed a novel data hiding method, Modified Data Hiding Ordered Dithering (MDHED) for halftone images. MDHED is an effective method to hide a relative amount of data while yielding halftone images with good visual quality. Besides, the amount of hidden data is easy to control and the security depends on the key not the system itself.
