Industrial Visit to SIFS INDIA
9th March 2016
Dronacharya College of Engineering, Gurgaonï¿½organized anï¿½Industrial Visit to SIFS INDIA, New Delhiï¿½onï¿½9th March 2016.ï¿½Twenty two students from Computer Science & Engineering and Information Technology Department accompanied by faculty memberï¿½Mr. Amar Saraswat,ï¿½went for theï¿½visit SIFS INDIAï¿½is a leading independent private forensic science lab, registered with Government of India (MCA, Govt. of India) and provides various types of forensic services. The aim of this industrial visit was to enable students to learn about image processing techniques, and Cyber Forensics.
Mr. Karamveer Singh, Cyber Crime Expertï¿½explained the students about various types of hacking such as White Hat and Black Hat, different software related to investigation which come under the field of hacking. He also discussed the importance of Image Processing, Forensic Science, Protection of Crime Scene, Securing and Isolating the crime scenes, different types of evidence found on a crime scene.
Ms. Sikshita, Cyber Crimeï¿½Expert gave a demo how the data item can be recovered and tools required for it. She described the importance of image processing in the field of forensic sciences and explained how we can notice the difference between the actual image and morphed image by viewing the changed resolution of full or part of the Image. With the help of various examples, he demonstrated the students that how we can judge that whether the image is morphed, which is obtained from the crime scene or it is real, by implementing various algorithms, which comes under image processing.
Dr. Ranjeet Singh, CEO, SIFS INDIAï¿½explained students about Cursive Recognition Approaches such as Document Pre - processing, which consist of noise removal, word box extraction, size normalization, Holistic matching, Featured Extraction and thinning.ï¿½Dr. Singhï¿½also focussed on various domains of image Forensics, such as analysis of evidences, Finger Print Analysis, Handwriting recognition.
Further,ï¿½Dr. Singh,ï¿½explained the students about Finger Print Databank, Plain Arche and Tented Arche, Radial Loop and Ulnar Loop, Plain Whorl and Composite Whorl. The Composite Whorl was again divided into Central Packet Loop, Double Whorl Loop and Accidental Whorl Loop.ï¿½Dr. Singhï¿½also focussed on Exemplar Fingerprint, which is known to have originated from a specific source camera and Latent Fingerprint, which is lifted from an evidential Image. He also talked about Cyber forensics, cybercrimes, and various preventive measures. Then,ï¿½Dr. Singhï¿½practically explained ways of obtaining fingerprints, by taking the fingerprints of one of the student. Using those fingerprints, he explained about various levels of finger prints. Level 2 studies of fingerprints included line unit, line fragment, ending, bifurcation; eye, hook and Level 3 are Pores, line shape, incipient ridges, creases, warts and scars.
Mr. Singhï¿½finally discussed the various career options related to image processing and cyber forensics. He motivated the students to start their research work in the field of image processing and major application areas related to it.
The visit proved to be very fruitful as the students learned a lot about tools used in mobile forensic investigation, image processing, and voice identification. During the practical sessions, the students enthusiastically interacted with the demonstrator and clarified their doubts.
