Abstract: Identifying the originating device for a given media, i.e. the type, brand, model and other characteristics of the device, is currently one of the important fields of digital forensics. This paper proposes a forensic technique based on the Benford's law to identify the printer's brand and model from the printed-and-scanned images at which the first digit probability distribution of multi-size block DCT coefficients are extracted that constitutes a feature vector as the input to support vector machine (SVM) classifier. The proposed technique is different from the traditional use of noise feature patterns appeared in the literature. It uses as few as nine numbers of forensic features representing each printer by leveraging properties of the Benford's law for printer identification. Experiments conducted over electrophotographic (EP) printers and deskjet printers achieve an average of 96.0{\%} classification rate of identification for five distinct printer brands and an average of 94.0{\%} classification rate for six diverse printer models out of those five brands.
