Open Access Checking the Integrity of Images with Signed Thumbnail Images

The integrity of images is an important and interesting field of research, since digital images are constantly encountered in everyday life today. The availability of image processing programs makes it possible for almost anyone to manipulate images without great effort. With the help of social media platforms, the hurdle for their distribution to a very large number of viewers has also been lowered. As a result, confidence in the integrity and authenticity of images, which was even stronger at the time of analogue photography, is dwindling.

The aim of this work is to develop and investigate a concept that counteracts the lost trust and creates an opportunity to check the integrity of processed images. The concept is based on a combination of signed thumbnails and the logging of possible processing steps. We show that this combination has advantages compared to the existing approaches.

More about this publication?
  • 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.
