Forensic Identification of Fake Digital Photographs

The phenomena of Fake Photos, Audio recordings, and Video have become viral. Just one example according to the Washington Post (2017), “following an attack on the London Bridge that killed eight people, fake photos started popping up of individuals falsely labeled as missing. Internet trolls widely shared a grainy picture of a man driving a silver car and said it was a picture of the suspect. (It turned out to be an old photo of a controversial but unrelated American comedian.)” This activity has become commonplace on the Internet, and Social Media and the results in many cases end up on the nightly news as FACTS. Not only is this practice extremely dangerous and unethical but it is simply fraud.
