If you live in the modern world, you have the ability to alter the format of any photo, video, or music file. Furthermore, there may be a variety of justifications or motivations for doing so. From a simple desire to better one's looks to more severe objectives such as cheating or attempting to influence someone's perception or image of reality, there is something for everyone. But how can you tell the difference between what is true and what is false? What tools should we employ, and can we be positive that the image we want to study is real or not using them, and with what degree of certainty can we decide this? Is that even possible? My project was just an attempt to develop a tool that, through suitable mathematical manipulations and the application of Benford's law, could be used to test Deepfake. It analyses the image and does a comparison between the curve of Benford's law and the curve that was derived after looking at our image. Any differences are easily identified by the investigator.
Thank you very much for your help, dedication and advice,
which I could always count on from my supervisor:
BSc (Hons), MSc, CISSP
|Friendly and simple GUI|
|Image uploader in order to test for possible image manipulations|
|Result chart with implemented the Benford law curve and tested image curve|
|Result table - numerical representation for tested Image|
