Practical Tools for Digital Image Forensic Authentication

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering book series (LNEE, volume 393)


In this paper, we introduced the state-of-the-art techniques for digital image forensic authentication. A novel system was presented which consisted of the advanced tools for digital image forensic authentication. The tools offered in the system had the functions including the image file header analysis, device identification, re-compression analysis, copy-paste detection, resampling analysis, etc. The system performance has been tested under practical cases of forensic image examination. The experimental data and results have proven the advancement of the proposed system which could be widely applied in forensic image examination and other forensic applications.
