Additionally, Sony is making a significant leap to address the growing concerns over manipulated images with the use of generative AI. The company through a blog post introduced a new security feature in partnership with the Associated Press which is called in-camera authenticity tech that aims to improve the authenticity and credibility of images clicked from their devices.

Sony's in-camera authenticity technology will enable machine-based digital signature to be superimposed on these images indicating they have been clicked by a human and not any AI technology. Sony feature will be present “inside the camera at the moment of capture in the hardware chipset.” The signature will work as a birth certificate for the image and it will specify its authenticity for use.

Sony will likely make available this authenticity technology to Alpha 9 III, Alpha 1, and Alpha 7S III through a firmware update in 2024 spring. Furthermore, it is rumored that the Sony security feature will also be featured in the Sony Xperia 1 VI. The in-camera authenticity tech is almost ready to be rolled out and Sony has recently completed its second round of testing to analyze its capabilities to authenticate AI images.
