What is provenance and authenticity infrastructure?

Provenance and authenticity infrastructure is everything, the tools, the software, or the broader ecosystem, that allows us to capture the provenance (source and history) of digital media, track it, and verify it.

It can serve as a tool to help tackle misinformation/disinformation and to fortify truth, but it also comes with potential harm.
