As result of powerful image processing tools, digital image forgeries have already become a serious social problem. In this paper we describe an effective method to detect copy-move forgery in digital images. This method works by first extracting SIFT descriptors of an image, which are invariant to changes in illumination, rotation, scaling etc. Owing to the similarity between pasted region and copied region, descriptors are then matched between each other to seek for any possible forgery in images. Experiments have been performed to demonstrate the efficiency of this method on different forgeries and quantify its robustness and sensitivity to post image processing, such as additive noise and lossy JPEG compression etc, or even compound processing.
