Abstract

In today's digital world securing different forms of content is very important in terms of protecting copyright and verifying authenticity. Many techniques have been developed to protect audio, video, digital documents, images, and programs (executable code). One example is watermarking of digital audio and images. We believe that a similar type of protection for printed documents is very important. In this paper we describe the use of image texture analysis to identify the printer used to print a document. In particular we will describe a set of features that can be used to provide forensic information about a document. We will demonstrate our methods using 10 EP printers.
