IPhone X Face ID tricked by researchers with 3D printed mask

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".
"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.
