(2019) JPEG White paper: Towards a Standardized Framework for Media Blockchain and Distributed Ledger Technologies [An initiative exploring opportunities in media blockchain and distributed ledger technologies and impacts on JPEG standardization]. Bhowmik D (Editor) & Temmermans F (Editor) Joint Photographic Experts Group (JPEG), ISO/IEC Joint Technical Committee 1, Subcommittee 29, Working Group 1 (ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 29/WG 1) Document number: N84038. https://jpeg.org/static/whitepapers/jpeg-media-blockchain-whitepaper.pdf
Fake news, copyright violation, media forensics, privacy and security are emerging challenges in digital media. JPEG has determined that blockchain and distributed ledger technologies (DLT) have great potential as a technology component to address these challenges in transparent and trustable media transactions. However, blockchain and DLT need to be integrated closely with a widely adopted standard to ensure broad interoperability of protected images. JPEG has engaged industry, other standardisation bodies and academic experts through four workshops on Media Blockchain to define use cases and requirements to driving the standardization process. JPEG identified two types of potential requirements which are expected to be addressed inside and outside the scope of JPEG.
