Perceptual Hashing Based Forensics Scheme for the Integrity Authentication of High Resolution Remote Sensing Image
AbstractHigh resolution remote sensing (HRRS) images are widely used in many sensitive fields, and their security should be protected thoroughly. Integrity authentication is one of their major security problems, while the traditional techniques cannot fully meet the requirements. In this paper, a perceptual hashing based forensics scheme is proposed for the integrity authentication of a HRRS image. The proposed scheme firstly partitions the HRRS image into grids and adaptively pretreats the grid cells according to the entropy. Secondly, the multi-scale edge features of the grid cells are extracted by the edge chains based on the adaptive strategy. Thirdly, principal component analysis (PCA) is applied on the extracted edge feature to get robust feature, which is then normalized and encrypted with secret key set by the user to receive the perceptual hash sequence. The integrity authentication procedure is achieved via the comparison between the recomputed perceptual hash sequence and the original one. Experimental results have shown that the proposed scheme has good robustness to normal content-preserving manipulations, has good sensitivity to detect local subtle and illegal tampering of the HRRS image, and has the ability to locate the tampering area.
