OpenMFC is an evaluation series open to public participants worldwide to support media forensics research and help advance the state-of-the-art imagery (image and video) forensics technologies. NIST OpenMFC team designed a set of evaluation tasks and released a series of media forensics datasets to support the OpenMFC evaluation as well as other related research work. Since 2016, NIST has released MFC dataset to more than 500 individuals and 200 organizations from 26 countries and regions worldwide. The online evaluation is being conducted to examine the performance of the system's accuracy and robustness and provide the performance visualization on an online leaderboard platform.
