— In recent decades, Internet technology has gained tremendous importance across the globe to substitute the traditional paperwork of information dissemination with electronic form. This expansion of Internet has triggered security constraints of intellectual property rights. Various security issues like illegal distribution, copy, reproduction and authentication can pose threat to this global information available on Internet. Till now considerable attempts are made for developing watermarking techniques for numerous natural languages. Each attempt has its own distinguished approach with respect to the properties of concerned natural language. This paper introduces a novel text watermarking technique to secure the intellectual property rights of the original author of Devanagari text. We mainly focus on Devanagari Text for which no watermarking technique has been proposed so far. Our aim is to develop an embedding algorithm which cleverly uses the unique construct of Devanagari language ‘sarvanam’ (pronoun) for generation of the effective watermarks in combination with additional security phrases. The proposed extraction algorithm also supports the defined security checks to preserve the authentication and copyrights of the genuine author of the Devanagari text document. Our experimental results demonstrate that proposed novel technique is significant for Devanagari text of varying length.
