This paper proposes a detailed framework of storing privacy information in surveillance video as a watermark. Authorized personnel is not only removed from the surveillance video as in [1] but also embedded into the video itself, which can only be retrieved with a secrete key. A perceptual-model-based compressed domain video watermarking scheme is proposed to deal with the huge payload problem in the proposed surveillance system. A signature is also embedded into the header of the video as in [2] for authentication. Simulation results have shown that the proposed algorithm can embed all the privacy information into the video without affecting its visual quality. As a result, the proposed video surveillance system can monitor the unauthorized persons in a restricted environment, protect the privacy of the authorized persons but, at the same time, allow the privacy information to be revealed in a secure and reliable way. 1
