Camera Model Anonymisation with Augmented cGANs

02/18/2020 ∙ by Jerone T. A. Andrews, et al. ∙ 0

The model of camera that was used to capture a particular photographic image (model attribution) can be inferred from model-specific artefacts present within the image. Typically these artefacts are found in high-frequency pixel patterns, rather than image content. Model anonymisation is the process of transforming these artefacts such that the apparent capture model is changed. Improved methods for attribution and anonymisation are important for improving digital forensics, and understanding its limits. Through conditional adversarial training, we present an approach for learning these transformations. Significantly, we augment the objective with the losses from pre-trained auxiliary model attribution classifiers that constrain the generator to not only synthesise discriminative high-frequency artefacts, but also salient image-based artefacts lost during image content suppression. Quantitative comparisons against a recent representative approach demonstrate the efficacy of our framework in a non-interactive black-box setting.
