Video Authentication Protocol

Alex X. Galloway, Qingzhong Liu

Abstract— Video watermarking and fingerprinting can be enhanced by combining them with a video authentication protocol (VAP) that utilizes cryptographic hardware and metadata to indicate ownership, origin and device identity. While watermarking and fingerprinting provide significant protection against third party attackers, they neglect standardization, protecting against a malicious user, and device-specific origin questions that VAP answers. Each time a video is recorded, VAP automatically creates and sends encrypted metadata to the manufacturer that created the video recording device. Then, another device may verify the video‚Äôs authenticity by sending a verification request to the manufacturer via a web service. To analyze the viability of this new technology, three areas are examined: the storage requirements, the relative CPU time performance of its functions, and a comparative attack analysis.

Index Terms— video authentication, watermarks, video fingerprinting, cryptographic hardware, video security.
