1 A METHOD FOR IMPLEMENTING PRIVACY-PRESERVING SECURITY SURVEILLLANCE BY APPLYING CRYPTOGRAPHIC TECHNIQUES ON A REAL-TIME EMBEDDED DSP FRAMEWORK Presented By- Ankur Chattopadhyay CS591 PROJECT SPRING 2007

2 Background Of The Problem Today’s surveillance mechanism leads to “privacy invasion” Legal issues in restricted places such as restrooms, private households Over the years, instances of unmonitored crime on the rise. “Eyes” Of A Camera Always Watching You Everywhere

3 Examples Of Existing Surveillance Cameras Surveillance Cameras Existing Monitoring

4 Current surveillance systems displace crime, rather than stop it - Employment of CCTV moving crime out of the camera boundaries Areas under surveillance become crime- free while unmonitored zones become targets for illegal activity - Criminal acts committed in a private location, such as a locker room or restroom The Present Issue To Deal With

5 Some Interesting Facts Instances of crime rising in schools -Most students avoid school restrooms out of fear -Almost 2000 students physically attacked each hour of the school day The Unfortunate Truth - Existing surveillance technology lowering privacy for the average person - Simultaneously, pushing crime further out of the view of the cameras

6 The Challenge Faced So, the question posed to surveillance system designers: How to apply technology in the right way and at the right place to enhance security while protecting fundamental privacy rights of individuals? The answer to this question lies in the technology of PrivacyCam - Future model of surveillance camera with privacy protection

7 PrivacyCam Blackfin DSP ModuleOmnivision CMOS Camera Module Integrated System: PrivacyCam

8 PrivacyCam: The Technology Uses privacy through cryptographic obscuration (PICO) technique PICO on a tiny Blackfin DSP processor chip, integrated with a small Omnivision CMOS camera module Application runs on a real-time operating system (uCLinux under Linux) within the chip Application performs the necessary tasks for privacy enhancement - detection of the region to protect - encryption of that region

9 System Level Design Of The Technology Implementation Capture image from the camera Detect the region to protect (using face detection, skin detection, motion detection or other methods) Use encryption key, generate session key and store the secured key, along with the protected region information, as embedded within the image Carry out encryption on the region to protect, and pass on the encrypted data to the image compression process pipeline

10 Detection Of Region Of Interest Background Subtraction Model -Two separate image frames, background model and a captured one, compared against each other -Compute per coefficient (pixel wise) difference for each 8 x 8 DCT block - Compare the obtained difference with a model threshold value. If the majority of the coefficient differences are greater than the threshold, we encrypt (encode) that block, otherwise we don’t encrypt that block (for my research I have used JPEG image compression)

11 Overview of Secret Key Cryptography To transmit data securely over an insecure medium, two parties agree on a key in which to encrypt data. –This key is usually exchanged through public-key cryptographic methods User A encrypts a block of data X with key W and sends this data to user B. By using the same key W, user B decrypts the ciphertext Y back into X X Z Insecure Medium Y W Y Z -1 X W AB Fundamental Concept: Due to algorithm Z, it’s nearly impossible to recover data X from ciphertext Y without key W. “Guessing” the key W through exhaustive search is generally infeasible.

12 Outline Diagram Of Applied Algorithm

13 The AES Algorithm The Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) -powerful standard cipher, that operates by performing a set of steps for a number of iterations called rounds -AES is a symmetric block cipher, and it’s better efficiency and effectiveness in handling data blocks (bytes) makes it an automatic choice over the vulnerable DES (Data Encryption Standard) For my research I used the Rijndael Block Cipher

14 AES Outline Diagram

15 Rijndael Block Cipher Algorithm –Developed by Joan Daemen and Vincent Rijmen (pronounced “Rhine- doll”) –An extremely fast, state-of-the-art, highly secure symmetric algorithm –Allows only 128, 192, and 256-bit key sizes –Variable block length supported – A block is the smallest data size the algorithm will encrypt Rijndael Algorithm

16 Some sample images from our PrivacyCam application while monitoring a private household. Each frame with a changing object is followed by an encrypted version. Here the human face region has been protected for hiding individual identity, thereby enhancing privacy.

17 Uniqueness Of Our Technology Protects privacy - hides individual identity -Encrypts the image-region to protect with AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) using an encryption key Enhances security against any possible crime scenario -Upon legal authorization, recovery of the full original image possible -Recovery process through decryption by accessing the encryption key

18 Unlike other existing technologies - PrivacyCam allows general surveillance to continue, without disrupting the privacy of an individual Compared to existing commercial privacy- enhancing applications like Emmitall -Provides better system stability and free from the typical vulnerabilities of software implementation -Forms a network based ethereal webcam sensor Technology Features/Advantages

19 Analysis Of Technology Low cost of embedded system hardware makes technology affordable Smallness in size of system components makes technology space-optimized Involves balanced DSP processors with minimum CPU overhead and very fast peripheral interfaces System provides embedded real-time application with performance in the order of microseconds

20 Target Application Areas As a general-purpose security camera -in public places -In restricted areas like restrooms, locker-rooms to name a few As a special vigilance camera -in bathrooms of school buildings Locker Room Rest Room

21 Application Areas As a surveillance camera for monitoring - old home centers for elder care - trouble-prone zones of school/university Examples of incidents of violence and trespassing at campus Elder Care Center

22 Recommendations Need to test PrivacyCam in more realistic conditions like restrooms and locker rooms Need to show more results of real-time performance in testing conditions Potential research work in improving the mechanism of detecting the privacy region Potential research work in trying out other public-key block cipher techniques Need to build on the technology by extending to audio & audio-video surveillance

23 Conclusion Novel technology addressing the critical issue of “privacy invasion” in an efficient and cost-effective way in optimized space Strikes fine balance between privacy protection and security enhancement Meets all the ideal requirements of today’s surveillance Growing and significant market Our technology challenges existing privacy-enhancing applications and surveillance systems
