Germany's Federal Criminal Police Office (BKA) publishes the final report "Authentizität digitaler Bilder II" ("Authenticity of Digital Images - Part II") by IMS

December 10, 2007

The Institut für Mikroelektronik Stuttgart was commissioned by the BKA to realize a demonstrator of a digital camera provided with an electronic signature component.

An individual signature information is added to each image file thus making it possible to detect any manipulations immediately. This is important in case digital images are used as evidence.
