Defending Against Fingerprint-Copy Attack in Sensor-Based Camera Identification
—Sensor photo-response non-uniformity has been proposed as a unique identifier (fingerprint) for various forensic tasks, including digital-camera ballistics in which an image is matched to a specific camera that took it. The problem investigated here concerns the situation when an adversary estimates the sensor fingerprint from a set of images and superimposes it onto an image from a different camera to frame an innocent victim. This paper proposes a reliable method for detecting such fake fingerprints under rather mild and general assumptions about the adversary’s activity and the means available to the victim. The proposed method is subjected to experiments to evaluate its reliability as well as its limitations. The conclusion that can be made from this study is that planting a sensor fingerprint in an image without leaving a trace is significantly more difficult than previously thought.
