Checking the Integrity of Images with Signed Thumbnail Images
  DOI :  10.2352/ISSN.2470-1173.2020.4.MWSF-118  Published OnlineJanuary 2020

The integrity of images is an important and interesting field of research, since digital images are constantly encountered in everyday life today. The availability of image processing programs makes it possible for almost anyone to manipulate images without great effort. With the help of social media platforms, the hurdle for their distribution to a very large number of viewers has also been lowered. As a result, confidence in the integrity and authenticity of images, which was even stronger at the time of analogue photography, is dwindling. The aim of this work is to develop and investigate a concept that counteracts the lost trust and creates an opportunity to check the integrity of processed images. The concept is based on a combination of signed thumbnails and the logging of possible processing steps. We show that this combination has advantages compared to the existing approaches.
