Abstract: Proliferation of powerful computers, innovative photo-editing software packages, and high resolution capturing devices leads to effortlessness in generating digital image falsification. Indeed, the security apprehension of digital images has ascended since a long period and diverse techniques for authenticating the integrity of digital images have been established. Conversely, significant exploration in this realm would be not only verifying the integrity of images but also correspondingly sensing the hints of tampering or falsification without necessitating additional prior information of the image content or any embedded watermarks. This paper reviews the recent developments in the field of digital image forgery detection. With the concept and methods, various applications of forgery detection are presented especially focusing on the use of soft computing for developing the techniques for forgery detection. The future of development and application of soft computing in digital image forgery detection is discussed.

Keywords: forgery detection; digital image processing; image watermarking; copy move forgery image splicing; soft computing.
