For PRNU-based forensic detectors, the fundamental test statistic is the normalized correlation between the camera fingerprint and the noise residual extracted from the image in successive overlapping analysis windows. The correlation predictor plays a crucial role in the performance of all such detectors. The traditional correlation predictor is based on predefined hand-crafted features representing intensity, texture and saturation characteristics of the image block under inspection. The performance of such an approach depends largely on the training and test data. We propose a convolutional neural network (CNN) architecture to predict the correlation from image patches of suitable size fed as input. Our empirical finding suggests that the CNN generalizes much better than the classical correlation predictor. With the CNN, we could operate with a common network architecture for various digital camera devices as well as a single network that could universally predict correlations for content from all cameras we experimented with, even including the ones that were not used in training the network. Integrating the CNN with our forensic detector gave state-of-the-art results.

  • For more than 30 years, the Electronic Imaging Symposium has been serving those in the broad community - from academia and industry - who work on imaging science and digital technologies. The breadth of the Symposium covers the entire imaging science ecosystem, from capture (sensors, camera) through image processing (image quality, color and appearance) to how we and our surrogate machines see and interpret images. Applications covered include augmented reality, autonomous vehicles, machine vision, data analysis, digital and mobile photography, security, virtual reality, and human vision. IS&T began sole sponsorship of the meeting in 2016. All papers presented at EIs 20+ conferences are open access.

    Please note: For purposes of its Digital Library content, IS&T defines Open Access as papers that will be downloadable in their entirety for free in perpetuity. Copyright restrictions on papers vary; see individual paper for details.
