Nikon Image Authentication vulnerability

The fine folks at @Elcomsoft have discovered yet another security flaw in digital cameras. First it was Canon. This time it's Nikon - specifically Nikon's Image Authentication Software.

Elcomsoft researchers found that the way the secure image signing key is being handled in the camera is flawed. This allowed them to extract the original signing key and then produce manipulated images that appear to be legit. I could see this being a huge deal in computer forensics and expert witness work.
