A System Based On Intrinsic Features For Fraudulent Document Detection

Abstract : Paper documents still represent a large amount of information supports used nowadays and may contain critical data. Even though official documents are secured with techniques such as printed patterns or artwork, paper documents suffer from a lack of security. However, the high availability of cheap scanning and printing hardware allows non-experts to easily create fake documents. As the use of a watermarking system added during the document production step is hardly possible, solutions have to be proposed to distinguish a genuine document from a forged one. In this paper, we present an automatic forgery detection method based on document's intrinsic features at character level. This method is based on the one hand on outlier character detection in a discriminant feature space and on the other hand on the detection of strictly similar characters. Therefore, a feature set is computed for all characters. Then, based on a distance between characters of the same class, the character is classified as a genuine one or fake one.
