With increasing availability of low-cost image editing softwares, the authenticity of digital images can no longer be taken for granted. Digital images have also been used as cover data for transmitting secret information in the field of steganography. In this paper, we introduce a new set of features for multimedia forensics to determine if a digital image is an authentic camera output or if it has been tampered or embedded with hidden data. We perform such image forensic analysis employing three sets of statistical noise features, including those from denoising operations, wavelet analysis, and neighborhood prediction. Our experimental results demonstrate that the proposed method can effectively distinguish digital images from their tampered or stego versions.
