Copy-Move Forgery Detectors and Ground Truth Generator
This software package contains the core components (code, some scripts) for our paper “An Evaluation of Popular Copy-Move Forgery Detection Approaches” by V. Christlein, C. Riess, J. Jordan, C. Riess and E. Angelopoulou.
The software consists of a single binary. Subcommands can be passed as the first parameter to either create ground truth for Copy-Move Forgery Detection (CMFD), or to apply a CMFD detector to an image.
To build the code, you require a) OpenCV, b) the boost library and c) cmake. The ground truth generator comes with a couple of perl scripts, which are not critical to the functionality of the software. We tested the code on a debian squeeze Linux; however, no platform-specific code is used in the C++ part. With some fiddeling in (or a replacement of) the build scripts, it should build smoothly on Windows as well.
The package contains a couple of README_*.txt files. Start in the base file (README.txt) for pointers to the remaining files. For instance, build instructions are contained in README_build.txt. In case you have questions, feel free to write to Christian Riess.
Note that the code is provided as-is. We aimed to carefully implement prior work. However, it may well be that we missed a good trick to improve the performance. If you find a bug, feel free to drop us an email, or directly send us a patch for the respective method.
The code is free to use for research purposes, licensed under the GPL 3.0.
