This letter presents a novel median filtering forensics approach, based on a convolutional neural network (CNN) with an adaptive filtering layer (AFL), which is built in the discrete cosine transform (DCT) domain. Using the proposed AFL, the CNN can determine the main frequency range closely related with the operational traces. Then, to automatically learn the multi-scale manipulation features, a multi-scale convolutional block is developed, exploring a new multi-scale feature fusion strategy based on the maxout function. The resultant features are further processed by a convolutional stream with pooling and batch normalization operations, and finally fed into the classification layer with the Softmax function. Experimental results show that our proposed approach is able to accurately detect the median filtering manipulation and outperforms the state-of-the-art schemes, especially in the scenarios of low image resolution and serious compression loss.

Due to the rapid development of internet in our daily life, protecting privacy has become a focus of attention. To create privacy-preserving database and prevent illegal user access the database, oblivious transfer with access control (OTAC) was proposed, which is a cryptographic primitive that extends from oblivious transfer (OT). It allows a user to anonymously query a database where each message is protected by an access control policy and only if the user' s attribute satisfy that access control policy can obtain it. In this paper, we propose a new protocol for OTAC by using elliptic curve cryptography, which is more efficient compared to the existing similar protocols. In our scheme, we also preserves user's anonymity and ensures that the user's attribute is not disclosed to the sender. Additionally, our construction guarantees the user to verify the correctness of messages recovered at the end of each transfer phase.

In cloud storage, remote data integrity checking is considered as a crucial technique about data owners who upload enormous data to cloud server provider. A majority of the existing remote data integrity checking protocols rely on the expensive public key infrastructure. In addition, the verification of certificates needs heavy computation and communication cost. Meanwhile, the existing some protocols are not secure under the quantum computer attacks. However, lattice-based constructed cryptography can resist quantum computer attacks and is fairly effective, involving matrix-matrix or matrix-vector multiplications. So, we propose an identity-based remote data integrity checking protocol from lattices, which can eliminate the certificate management process and resist quantum computer attacks. Our protocol is completeness and provably secure based on the hardness small integer solution assumption. The presented scheme is secure against cloud service provider attacks, and leaks no any blocks of the stored file to the third party auditor during verification stage, namely the data privacy against the curiosity third party auditor attacks. The cloud service provider attack includes lost attack and tamper attack. Furthermore, the performance analysis of some protocols demonstrate that our protocol of remote data integrity checking is useful and efficient.
