In this paper, we focus on blind source cell-phone identification problem. The main idea is that proprietary interpolation algorithm (involved due to the structure of color filter array [CFA]) leaves footprints in the form of correlations across adjacent bit planes of images. For this purpose, we explore a set of binary similarity measures, image quality measures and higher order wavelet statistics in conjunction with KNN and SVM classifiers to identify the originating cell-phone. We provide identification results among 9 different brand cell-phone cameras.
