+ - Nikon's Image Authentication Insecure->

Submitted by silanea
silanea (1241518) writes "Elcomsoft claims to have broken Nikon's Image Authentication system which — apparently only in theory — ensures that a photograph is authentic and not tampered with through a digital signature. They were able to extract the signing key from a camera and use it to have a modified image pass the software verification, rendering the rather expensive feature mostly marketed to law enforcement all but useless. So far Nikon has not given a statement.

Canon's competing system was cracked by the same company last December."
