In this paper, a novel block-wise fragile image watermarking algorithm for tampering localization and recovery is proposed. The image is divided into Region of Interest (ROI) and Region of Non Interest (RONI). Considering the ROIbased self-embedding problem as a special erasure channel, fountain code is applied in our method to deal with the reference symbols loss. And to minimize quality degradation in ROI, the reference symbols for recovery are only embedded into RONI blocks. Theoretical analysis shows that the result is nearly optimal, and the experimental results demonstrate the proposed method can offer low payload and high tamper tolerance. And the quality of both the watermarked image and the reconstructed image is high.
