Image copier and image copying method

Abstract
An image copier of the invention includes a document table to position a document from which an image is read, a document holding cover to hold the document on the document table, a light source to irradiate light to the document when the image of the document is read, and an image reading light receiving element to receive reflected light from the document, and the document holding cover includes a document size detecting light emitting element to emit light at a time of document size detection. According to the image copier of the invention, the document size can be accurately detected independently of the kind of the document.

Image copier and image copying method

Abstract
An image copier according to the invention comprises a scanner for reading an image and a printer for forming an image on sheet, and the scanner includes a document table for positioning an original document from which an image is to be read; a document holding cover holding the original document on the original document table and having a light-emitting element for detecting the size of an original document which emits light when the size of the original document is detected, a light source for irradiating the original document with light when an image on the original document is read, a light-receiving element for image reading which receives reflected light from the original document, a controller for the light-emitting element for detecting the size of an original document which controls the light-emitting element for detecting the thickness of the original document, a specific region determination unit for identifying a specific region based on the numbers of pixels in a main scanning direction and a sub scanning direction of image data, and a background correction unit for performing a process of correcting the background of an image which has been read. In the image copier according to the invention, see-through copying of the bottom side can be suppressed by performing a background correction process after an image is read without blocking a sensor hole of a sensor for detecting the size of the original document from light.

Encryption of image data in a digital copier

Abstract
In a digital copier, wherein hard-copy original images are scanned and retained as digital data in a memory and subsequently digitally printed out as copies, original data is encrypted before being stored in the memory, and then decrypted incidental to printing or other export. Data stored within a digital copier is thus protected from being hacked or otherwise accessed. Keys for encryption or decryption are stored external to the copier. Properties of "Pretty Good Privacy" (PGP), such as the use of session keys, can be employed. Also, an independent arbiter, connected with a plurality of copiers over a network, can perform security functions, such as retaining decryption keys for a large number of copy jobs, or erasing or transferring data out of copiers in response to a security alert.
