These funds to Polytechnic University are to design and implement novel algorithms for verifying the integrity and authenticity of digital photographic evidence. The project involves an experienced academic researcher as well as an experienced practitioner and entails the development of practical tools for forensics experts and law enforcement agencies.
Polytechnic University proposed to continue their work designing and implementing novel techniques to identify the source of the digital images and video used as legal evidence. Two aspects of the image and video source identification problem are considered. The first aspect concerns the capability to extract a set of features and descriptors that are associated with a class of sources. The second is related to establishing an association with an individual image or video and a potential source.
