Research Area:  Digital Forensics
With the extensive use of multimedia on internet and easy approachability of powerful image and video editing software, doctored visual contents have been extensively appearing in our electronic-mail in-boxes, Whatsapp, Facebook or any other social media. Recently, attempting blind tampering in visual contents have been progressively adopted. This paper presents a collaborative survey on detection of such attempts. Our aim is to establish an effective path, for researchers working in the field of image and video forensics, to unfold new aspects of forgery. This paper will avail the comprehensive study that will assist the researchers to go through the various challenges encountered in the previous work. The focus of this paper is to review the splicing and copy–move forgery detection methods in images as well as inter and intra-frame forgery challenges in videos, highlighting the commonly used datasets and hence assisting new researchers to work on with. The efficacy of the paper is that such collaborative survey under one umbrella is not available yet.
