Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $331,056)

The goal of this project is to extend prior work on steganalysis and forgery detection to rigorously examine the methods used by forensics scientists so that a more complete understanding of the scientific basis of digital multimedia forensics can be achieved. Additional goals of this research are to develop quantifiable measures for reliability and accuracy of steganalysis and authentication of digital media evidence, to design new approaches by constructing quantification models, to introduce new measurement parameters to enhance the evaluation, to examine systemic errors, and to seek a full understanding of quantifiable measures of uncertainty in the conclusions of forensic analysis towards complete evaluation.
