Abstract: In this paper we consider the issue of tracing digital cameras by analyzing pictures they produced. Clearly, the possibility of establishing if a picture was taken by a given camera or even if two pictures come from cameras of the same model can expose users’ privacy to a serious threat. In the paper, at first, we propose a simple and ultra-fast algorithm for identification of the brand of a digital camera and compare the results with the state-of-the-art algorithm by Lukás et al.’s. Experimental results show that at the cost of a moderate decrease of accuracy, our method is significantly faster, thus can be used for an analysis of large batches of pictures or as a preprocessing for more exact. In the second part, we propose a method for limiting the possibility of tracing digital cameras. Our method is a transformation of the picture that can be classified as a type of standardization. We prove that it prevents all methods of tracing cameras based on analysis of histograms. Moreover, in an extensive experimental evaluation we demonstrate that the transformed pictures are very similar to the original images under both visual and objective numerical measure inspection.
