In this paper, we analyze and analytically describe the specific statistical changes brought into the covariance structure of signal by the interpolation process. We show that interpolated signals and their derivatives contain specific detectable periodic properties. Based on this, we propose a blind, efficient, and automatic method capable of finding traces of resampling and interpolation. The proposed method can be very useful in many areas, especially in image security and authentication. For instance, when two or more images are spliced together, to create high quality and consistent image forgeries, almost always geometric transformations, such as scaling, rotation, or skewing are needed. These procedures are typically based on a resampling and interpolation step. By having a method capable of detecting the traces of resampling, we can significantly reduce the successful usage of such forgeries. Among other points, the presented method is also very useful in estimation of the geometric transformations factors.
