The concept of using Photo Response Non-Uniformity (PRNU) as a reliable forensic tool to match an image to a source camera is now well established. Traditionally, the PRNU estimation methodologies have centred on a wavelet based de-noising approach. Resultant filtering artefacts in combination with image and JPEG contamination act to reduce the quality of PRNU estimation. In this paper, it is argued that the application calls for a simplified filtering strategy which at its base level may be realised using a combination of adaptive and median filtering applied in the spatial domain. The proposed filtering method is interlinked with a further two stage enhancement strategy where only pixels in the image having high probabilities of significant PRNU bias are retained. This methodology significantly improves the discrimination between matching and non-matching image data sets over that of the common wavelet filtering approach.
