CS297 Proposal

Faking Sensor Noise Information.

Justin Chang (

Advisor: Dr. Chris Pollett


Pictures taken by digital cameras leave unique imprints on the images they produce. These imprints can be interpreted as noise and be passed through a filter. The goal of this project is to identify a noise filter and camera model pair and impose a noise pattern onto an image that is from a camera different than the camera that the image was originally taken from. This resulting image would be able to fool camera model detection networks of modern benchmarks.

The full project will be done when CS298 is completed. The following will be done by the end of CS297:

1. Find dataset with images and labels with camera model names. Find sensor noise pattern for my own phone based on averages

2. Find sensor noise pattern for my own phone using wavelet transforms.

3. Look at existing camera model detection networks and test them against dataset.

4. Implement a GAN network.

5. Finish report.
