Professor K. J. Ray Liu is the principal investigator (PI), and Associate Professor Min Wu (ECE/UMIACS) is the co-PI for a grant from the Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR). This 3-year effort will investigate theories and algorithms to perform non-intrusive forensic analysis on multimedia devices and digital content.

As multimedia devices and digital content have become ubiquitous, a critical issue that must be addressed next is to ensure that content, devices, and intellectual property are being used by authorized users for legitimate purposes, and to be able to forensically prove with high confidence when the case is otherwise. Liu and Wu's team will exploit intrinsic fingerprints, which are inherent traces left by various processing steps when media data goes through acquisition devices and processing systems. The goal of this research effort is to develop a holistic forensic framework to gather traces of evidence and answer who has done what, when, where, and how.

As a vital component of the Air Force Research Laboratory, the Air Force Office of Scientific Research manages the basic research investment for the U.S. Air Force. The AFOSR seeks to create revolutionary scientific breakthrough and produce world-class, militarily significant, and commercially valuable research outcome.
