A method of identifying JPEG 2000 images with different coding parameters, such as code-block sizes, quantization-step sizes, and resolution levels, is presented. It does not produce false-negative matches regardless of different coding parameters (compression rate, code-block size, and discrete wavelet transform (DWT) resolutions levels) or quantization step sizes. This feature is not provided by conventional methods. Moreover, the proposed approach is fast because it uses the number of zero-bit-planes that can be extracted from the JPEG 2000 codestream by only parsing the header information without embedded block coding with optimized truncation (EBCOT) decoding. The experimental results revealed the effectiveness of image identification based on the new method.
