The popularity of internet usage has resulted in the exponential growth of data in one form or the other. The exhaustive use of massive amount of artistic and communicative multimedia for several purposes has resulted in a need to develop tools and techniques to handle such multimedia in a secure and privacy-preserved manner. The legitimacy, ownership and authentication of such datasets are important as it can have a significant effect on the lives of human beings and organizations as a whole. With the advancement of technology, there exists an ocean of freely available software that can be used to create fake and tampered data without being detected by the normal visual perceptions resulting in dangerous consequences. Today, issues like copyright, ownership and legitimacy are imperative when we deal with multimedia data. This has made multimedia tampering detection an important area for research. Many techniques are being developed to identify different types of tampering in multimedia. This paper aims to present the state-of-the-art about multimedia tampering detection tools and techniques. Furthermore, it provides a comprehensive survey of the current researches in the area of multimedia tampering detection and related technologies.
