Our text watermarking app is based on homoglyph characters substitution for latin symbols. The proposed method is able to efficiently embed a password based watermark in short texts by strictly preserving the content. In particular, it uses alternative Unicode symbols to ensure visual indistinguishability and length preservation, namely content-preservation.
This fine-grain version of our text watermarking method is able to embed the watermark in all portions of the original text. In order to be able to verify a watermarked portion, as an additional layer of security, the original full text is also needed along with a long enough text portion. Minimal length requirement of portions is on average 100 characters, but it may vary depending on the characters in the portions.
