In this paper, a novel individual source scanner identification scheme is proposed. The scheme uses traces of dust, dirt, and scratches over scanner platen on scanned images to characterize a source scanner. The efficacy of the proposed scheme is substantiated with experimental analysis. The robustness of the scheme to the JPEG compression is also investigated. Experimental results show that proposed scheme could be used to match a scanned image to its source.
