According to Fast Company, in 2015 Truepic presented an approach with provenance-based capture, which flips the problem of authentication and asks the camera to authenticate images and videos at the point of recording with good scale and speed.
A recent engineering breakthrough by Truepic engineers working on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon chipset now allows image authentication technology to be built directly into smartphone hardware. This means that smartphone makers will have the ability to provide secure image and video capture functionality in the cameras that people use daily, empowering billions of people to disseminate authenticated information.
This technology is also being developed and expanded upon by the likes of Serelay, Adobe, Microsoft, and others – is viable and already available.
