Forensic image authentication and tamper detection on digital photos
Amped Authenticate provides a suite of different tools to determine whether an image is an unaltered original, an original generated by a specific device, or the result of a manipulation with a photo editing software and thus may not be accepted as evidence.
Current products and processes are focused on one or a relative few scientific tools. Amped Authenticate puts the power of multiple tests, procedures, and reporting in one package to improve the user’s ability to detect tampered images or determine originality.
CameraForensics is integrated with Amped Authenticate
Enterprise We encourage use of the service across a whole organisation, rather than limiting its use to a small number of investigators - we offer even lower per-user costs for enterprise access, with no usage restrictions on location. Please contact us to discuss this option.
Dedicated cloud-based crawlers continually add to the database. Some crawlers are unlimited in scope. Some that are optimised to target specific data-rich websites such as Flickr and Google+. (Notable exceptions to our crawling are Facebook and Instagram, which currently strip all Exif data).
Optimise our searching approach to maximise the useful information - e.g. we prefer to find a few photos from lots of cameras, rather than lots of photos from a few cameras
Crowd-source further crawling via a Google Chrome plug-in, with over 10,000 users
Our crawling targets openly-available, innocent images - we do not look for indecent imagery, we instead search for connections that will help you find the user of a camera
Support for over 1400 camera types (and growing) that store uniquely-identifying metadata along with an image. (No known models of smartphones store this data, and are currently not supported)
Searching is carried-out against our database of image URLs, indexed against relevant metadata - with matches found by cross-comparing unique identifiers in image metadata (Exif data)
Our database currently has the URLs of over 1.6 billion photographs (and growing)
