Investigating Fake Digital Photos

Techno Security and Digital Forensics Conference

Tuesday October 1, 9:30 AM

The global impact resulting from the distribution of doctored digital photographs has reached epidemic proportions. These digitally altered photos are distributed via social media, news outlets, traditional web resources and are making their way into mainstream media. The impact these photos make can dramatically change the way people think, act, react, believe and can potentially cause harm.

At the simplest level, they represent visual fraud. During this session, Chet Hosmer will convey real examples along with the resulting impacts that have already occurred. Most importantly, the presenter will demonstrate a new methodology rooted in the dark art of steganography that can actively identify these fraudulent photos and trace their origins back to their creators.
