Even if details of the pseudo-random number generator are advertised to the world, unless the seeds plus [the token holder's passwords] are revealed," attacks are not possible, he said.
The protocol also requires a cryptographically secure pseudo-random number generator (CSPRNG) having a very long period, satisfying the 'next-bit test' and withstanding 'state compromise extensions' (Schneier 1996).
The review of each algorithm included a methodical evaluation of the following characteristics: security (including any known attacks or weaknesses); efficiency (both speed and memory usage); flexibility (implementation on low- and high- end smart cards; support of additional key and block sizes, including whether the reference code actually supported the additional key sizes; suitability for use a pseudo-random number generator, hashing algorithm, etc.
For instance, the user key can designate the number of decomposition level, the seed of the pseudo-random number generator for each decomposed band, the measurement used to perform the image-dependent permutation, the patterns of the residual masks, and the specific bands for embedding the lowest band of the binary watermark.
