Forensic image and video authentication

“Seeing is no longer believing”

An example of a DeepFake detection

Everyone has encountered it in some form or shape, manipulation or generation of images and video’s. One can think of videos where famous politicians say things they would never say in public or removing that one person from our holiday pictures which you do not know.

At first this may look harmless and funny but what if this video of a politician saying something will harm international relations? Or what if someone appears in a specific type of video which will harm their reputation?

You can no longer believe what you are seeing. You have to ask yourself what is the source of this footage and if this can be trusted. Especially in forensic applications in which the truth is sought-after.

The new generation of Mandet is a platform build to help search for traces of manipulation in both images and video. The program consist of different components:

  • Image/Single frame filtersDifferent filters which can be applied on an image or frame.In collaboration with DuckDuckGoose, we have integrated an artificial intelligence (AI) based DeepFake detection filter.
  • Video analysers
    These will analyse specific signals through the whole video.

    An example of a manipulation detection

  • Hexadecimal viewer with file layout for png and jpeg
    Review the actual bytes of a file using Hexadecimal and ASCII tables
    and review the format specific building blocks of a file.
  • Camera Ballistics
    Match a specific image to a specific camera using PRNU.
  • Integrated report building and export to pdf, html or docx file.

Because analysing an image can be a time consuming job, the software is set up in such a way that applying multiple filters, video analysers, etc at the same time is very easy. Simply browse through the results and further investigate striking features in the detail windows.

It is also possible to compare two files for the filter results, metadata and hexadecimal viewer. This also works for videos, which can be navigated simultaneously or independent.
