UNCHAINED Project

Progetto: UNCHAINED (UNcovering media manipulation CHains through contAINer and contEnt Detectable traces)
Support: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) nell'ambito del programma di ricerca Reverse Engineering of Deceptions (RED)
Period: 2020-2022
Description: The UNCHAINED project aims at designing a reliable forensics analysis framework able to characterize signatures left by different toolchains on digital images and videos. The core technical challenge of UNCHAINED is to build an information fusion system encompassing content-based statistics, container-based characteristics and additional side information (when available), to probabilistically map the media object under analysis first into a toolchain family and then into a specific toolchain, built upon a scalable set of basic operations.
