IPhone X Face ID security software apparently tricked by 3D printed mask

Apple iPhone X FaceID crack attempts; do they work?

It might not be a question of movie-like authenticity, however - security researchers at Bkav claim to have thwarted Face ID by using a specially-built mask.

Facial recognition is the next iteration of biometric identification.

"Potential targets shall not be regular users, but billionaires, leaders of major corporations, nations' leaders, and agents like Federal Bureau of Investigation need to understand the Face ID's issue", the company's researchers said. According to Mr Ngo, some special processing is needed on the cheeks and around the face, where there are large skin areas, to fool Face IDs artificial intelligence (AI). Over the course of around five days, Bkav was able to fabricate a 3D printed frame for the mask, in addition to handcrafted fake skin and simple 2D images of eyes and lips, all of which were created to mimic the appearance of the actual iPhone user, whose real face was logged into the iPhone's security system. Wired also reported on the Bkav hack, comparing its own efforts against what we can glean from the video. If you still find yourself in a situation where law enforcement agencies might attempt to get your iPhone X unlocked, you can disable the Face ID technology by pressing the lock button five times. Face ID allows iPhone X users to unlock their phone just by looking at it.

Face ID is one of the headline features of the £1,000 iPhone X and can be used to unlock the device. Apple announced on iPhone X debut that even Hollywood-quality masks can not fool its security system.

The firm is launching its own facial recognition technology named ZoOm Login which provides ultra-secure face authentication by matching the user via recognition algorithms and verifying 3D liveness via AI. The anti-spoofing device works using a randomized sequence of 2D images and a depth map captured by the camera. Face ID is even attention-aware.

Apple immediately rejected the report claiming "The quality and accuracy of Face ID haven't changed". Bkav added that they are also working on other versions of the technique that could make it easier to unlock someone's iPhone X.

Trump sarcastically responds to Kim Jong Un insults
Trump has traded insults and threats with Kim in the past amid escalating tensions over Pyongyang's nuclear and missile programs. The Korean Central News Agency referred to Trump on Saturday as a "destroyer" and a "dotard" who "begged for nuclear war".

Late last week, a video started doing the rounds showing that Face ID can be "hacked," if you have a detailed scan of a user's face, a 3-D printer, and a lot of spare time.

Bkav did not give details of how long it took for its iPhone X to unlock with the mask.

"This seems like an unlikely sequence of events", Paul Norris, a systems engineer at security company Tripwire said. They offered some details about the mask, saying that a handmade artist developed the nose.
