Digital Image Forensics UniSa



About us?

We are a research group which operates in the field of Digital Forensics by 2010. The team is coordinated by Prof. Alfredo De Santis and Prof. Giuseppe Cattaneo - Department of Computer Science - University of Salerno. The group has as its objective the study and development of new techniques and innovative tools designed to ensure greater reliability in support of the investigations. The research team consists of researchers, Ph.D. students and students in collaboration with technical professionals and legal police force.

The members are:

  • Alfredo De Santis - Professor at Department of Computer Science - University of Salerno

  • Giuseppe Cattaneo - Associate Professor at Department of Computer Science - University of Salerno

  • Umberto Ferraro Petrillo - Assistant Professor at "Dipartimento di Scienze Statistiche" - "Sapienza", University of Rome

  • Gianluca Roscigno - Ph.D., Department of Computer Science - University of Salerno

  • Andrea Bruno - Ph.D. Student, Department of Computer Science - University of Salerno


What do we do about Digital Image Forensics?

  • Source Camera Identification (SCI)
    "What is the specific camera that has taken a digital image?". Detecting the specific camera with which it has acquired a digital content (image or video) is crucial in many scenarios, typically lawyers, in which the digital resource represents a trial to be shown in court. In this type of application, we must be able to associate an image to a specific hardware device and not just a brand or camera model.

  • Image Integrity
    Detecting whether a given digital image has undergone some kind of tampering or post-processing after it has been initially taken. The goal of scientific research in this area is to identify automatic techniques that can detect appropriately the tampering image.
