This paper presents a reversible fragile data hiding scheme for tampering detection in remote sensing images based on the histogram shifting approach. The image to be protected is divided into blocks of a reduced size and a subset of the image bands are selected for embedding. Instead of using the histogram of each separate band, the shifting process is applied to the histogram of the maximum component (or infinity norm) of the vectors obtained with the selected bands. The proposed approach is reversible and thus, the original image can be fully recovered once it has been authenticated. The method is designed to detect specific forged blocks (areas) of the protected image and is shown to succeed to detect copy and replace attacks. In addition, the experimental results, presented for the Cuprite AVIRIS image, show that the method yields extremely high transparency, with PSNR larger than 100 dB prior to reversing the scheme and recovering the original image.
