Camera fingerprinting is a technology established in the signal processing community for image forensics. We explore its novel security and privacy perspectives that have been so far largely ignored, including its applications in privacy intrusion, in handling new socio-technical problems such as revenge porn, and in building a novel authentication mechanism – any photo you take are you.


Authentication Internet-scale privacy intrusion Revenge porn 



I thank Mike Bond, James Lei, Laurent Simon, Bingsheng Zhang and the workshop attendees for discussing some of the ideas.
