Abstract : This paper discusses the rare event simulation for a fixed probability law. The motivation comes from problems occurring in watermarking and fingerprinting of digital contents, which is a new application of rare event simulation techniques. We provide two versions of our algorithm, and discuss the convergence properties and implementation issues. A discussion on recent related works is also provided. Finally, we give some numerical results in watermarking context.
