IPhone X Face ID tricked by researchers with 3D printed mask
14 November, 2017, 01:15 | Author: Becky Perry
The Bkav researchers say they were able to crack Face ID with a cheap mix of materials, 3D printing rather than face-casting, and perhaps most surprisingly, fixed, two-dimensional printed eyes.
Face ID allows a user to unlock their iPhone X, make purchases from various Apple digital stores and authenticate Apple Pay transactions to pay using stored payment card data. For those who don't know, the face-scanning system on the iPhone works by a True Depth camera system that scans your face every time you are using your phone.
Bkav said in a blog post, 'Face ID can be fooled by mask, which means it is not an effective security measure'. And Face ID was not able to distinguish between the two.
Well, it turns out you don't need an evil twin because Apple's Face ID can be hacked using a mask, according to IT security researchers at Bkav. They have developed a mask which costs $150.
Bkav also published a YouTube video that shows one of their staff members pulling a piece of cloth from a 3D-printed mask.
One iPhone X user claims that the FaceID was so fast at first that "there wasn't even a delay when I swiped up to unlock", but after few days of using the phones it became slower "to the point where it is very noticeable" regardless of the lighting conditions. "This seems like an unlikely sequence of events".
Delhi smog: City's residents frustrated over vehicle rationing
Ghaziabad was the most polluted city in the entire NCR, with PM2.5 at an astounding 848 units at 4 p.m - 33 times the safe limit. The AAP had alleged that the subtle burning in Punjab and Haryana, was the main cause of the rising pollution in Delhi .
"It's important to note that the attacks being talked about are individual bespoke attacks that must be built and executed against each victim separately", said Terry Ray, CTO of Imperva, via email. BKAV said the potential targets wouldn't be people with average threat models, it would be "billionaires, leaders of major corporations, nation leaders". "Exploitation is hard for normal users, but simple for professional ones".
But U.S. security experts aren't as quick to dismiss the security of the device.
The smartphone rival admitted the flaw but said that it never claimed facial recognition was uncrackable.
He added, "Strong authentication can not be faked, gamed, or manipulated. From there, the recognition system only seeks to confirm its assumption...never to seek to prove its assumption wrong". Face ID is different from other electronic devices' image recognition techniques due to this dot projection, which creates a 3D image by directing beams of infrared light at a person's face; then, artificial intelligence essentially "learns" the face and keeps other faces from accessing the phone. Face ID is even attention-aware.
He has short black hair, brown eyes and was wearing a red winter jacket, grey trousers and a black backpack. Police say one of the victims became aware of the scam when she turned her phone on in the Montreal area.
The school has also changed the way it regulates fraternities and sororities, assuming more control over disciplinary procedures. Piazza in the basement video... never once obtained any of those drinks for himself", she told reporters Monday.

Eyes will be on whether Trump does the fist pump, having told Duterte in April he was doing a "great job" in his drug war. Trump says Modi has "become a friend of ours" and praising the Indian leader during their one-on-one meeting.
It estimates that 37 billion tonnes of Carbon dioxide will be emitted from burning fossil fuels, the highest total so far. The new analysis was based on the available energy use data for 2017 and projections for the latter part of the year.
According to the complaints, when used as a speakerphone at high volumes, the iPhone X earpiece speaker can buzz or crackle. Replacing a cracked iPhone X display will cost $279; if the back is cracked as well, the fix bill rises to a whopping $549.
While this may help gamers to make up their mind about the game, personally I'm most interested in the game's campaign. The model that EA appears to be using for Battlefront II is reminiscient of those used for free-to-play games.
The government's hope is that a deal can be reached by next autumn, which would then be put before Parliament ahead of Brexit . The government has also proposed its own amendment to the legislation - one that opponents say tie its hands in the talks.
Trump followed up his weird tweet by telling reporters that it would be a "good thing" for him and dictator to become friends. He said he doesn't know if that friendship will develop, but added it would be "very, very nice if it did".
The move follows the controversial launch of rival Uber in Toronto a few years ago, which saw protests by taxi drivers. The company is also beginning to sign up potential drivers now in advance of its rollout of its service.
Mrs Mogherini said the move would not only complement Nato's security aims but fill in gaps in the Atlantic alliance. With the notification signed, a final decision to launch the defense cooperation framework is expected in December.
