Image Authentication Using Local Binary Pattern on the Low Frequency Components

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering book series (LNEE, volume 372)


Detection of copy move forgery in images is helpful in legal evidence, in forensic investigation and many other fields. Many Copy Move Forgery Detection (CMFD) schemes are existing in the literature. However, most of them fail to withstand post-processing operations viz., JPEG Compression, noise contamination, rotation. Even if able to identify, they consumes much time to detect and locate. In this paper, a technique is proposed which uses Discrete Wavelet Transform (DWT) and Local Binary Pattern (LBP) to identify copy-move forgery. Features are extracted by using LBP on the LL band obtained by applying DWT on the input image. Proper selection of similarity and distance thresholds can localize the forged region correctly.
