ToothPic is a startup spin-off of Politecnico di Torino incubated in I3P, developing innovative technologies for Camera Identification.
Camera Identification consists in the ability to trace a picture back to the camera that shot it, relying on the manufacturing imperfections of camera sensors, that leave in each photo an invisible and unique fingerprint.
ToothPic developed a technology for online user authentication.
Users are identified by the possession of their devices, which is recognized by their camera fingerprint.
We designed the system to be fast and user-friendly, and we need your help to test it on various devices and different users.
We created a game, and your help will be rewarded! Here are the instructions.
- After your consent, the system will register the camera fingerprint of your device, if compatible.
- Then, you’ll be able to complete missions. During a mission, the system will compare the registered fingerprint with the one calculated on-the-fly, in a way similar to the authentication process.
- The missions will be spread throughout the day, and it won’t be possible to complete missions that are less than 1 hr apart.
- Each mission will be rewarded with 5 points. You can gain extra points if your device model is still unknown to the system, and for inviting friends who will start playing.
A device reaching 150 points will obtain a reward.
We neither collect, nor ask, nor are interested in your personal data or your photos.
