    Nikon Image Authentication Software - Press Release

    Nikon Image Authentication Software —
    New software enables verification of authenticity of images captured with a Nikon D2Xs digital SLR.

    TOKYO – Nikon Corporation is pleased to announce the release of its all-new Image Authentication Software, designed exclusively for use with the Nikon D2Xs digital SLR. This software enables the authentication of an image captured by the camera and can determine whether or not it has been altered since capture. Image data can be used as a critical link in the “chain of evidence” for verifying image authenticity by law enforcement and government agencies, the media, insurance companies and for a variety of other business applications. Nikon Image Authentication Software allows easy, secure authentication of images for a wide range of requirements. Image data as well as information attached to the image are verified to determine whether an image captured by the camera has been changed in any way. Verification results are displayed as a list on the screen of a personal computer, and images selected are displayed as thumbnails within the same screen.

    Major Features
    Quick and easy verification of authenticity

    Permits verification via a personal computer as to whether an image has been processed or edited after it was taken. Thumbnails of the images selected in the results display area are displayed for confirmation.

    Protection of the software itself
    Various code protections are employed to prevent alterations to the software program. And to further improve reliability when using this software, both a product key and a USB key are required. The USB key must be plugged into the USB port to commence application.

    Three file formats can be verified
    The software enables verification of JPEG, TIFF and NEF(RAW) data taken using a Nikon digital SLR compatible with the authentication function.
