Previous research showed that camera specific noise patterns, so-called PRNU-patterns, are extracted from images and related images could be found. In this particular research the focus is on grouping images from a database, based on a shared noise pattern as an identification method for cameras. Using the method as described in this paper, groups of images, created using the same camera, could be linked from a large database of images. Using MATLAB programming, relevant image noise patterns are extracted from images much quicker than common methods by the use of faster noise extraction filters and improvements to reduce the calculation costs.
