Apple FaceID Tricked With $150 Mask

The managed to deceive Apple's Face ID authentication system from its iPhone X. They also argued that this technology is not mature enough to guarantee complete security for the new smartphones.

Bkav did say that attacks would likely be executed on high-profile targets: "FBI, CIA, country leaders, leaders of major corporations, etc. are the ones that need to know about the issue, because their devices are worth illegal unlock attempts", it said.

Because Face ID runs on artificial intelligence that learns each time it's used, the algorithm could have been trained to learn the human's face based off the mask in reverse.

The mask is made of hand-crafted "skin" with the face model being 3D printed on top of it.

After registering a person's face on the phone - and the handset should only unlock when it sees this face - the team built a 3D printed mask of the test subject using an off-the-shelf 3D printer.

Bkav's claims come despite Apple's statement that the engineering team had collaborated with "professional mask makers and make-up artists in Hollywood to protect against these attempts to beat Face ID".

OnePlus 5T design and full specs leaked ahead of November 16 launch
According to the images showing the review guide, the OnePlus 5T will sport a 16MP Sony IMX398 sensor along with f/1.7 aperture. Ahead of the launch, tipster Slashleaks has put out full specifications of OnePlus' next-generation flagship on Twitter.

Wired has more details on how Bkav tricked Face ID, and exactly what was required to defeat the system. Since the iPhone X dropped, people have been experimenting with Face ID, some looking for its limits, others entirely out to trick it.

Biometric FolliesPhilip W. Schiller, Apple's senior vice president of worldwide marketing, speaks on September 13 at the launch of the iPhone X. That's because Face ID has the same timeouts as Apple's Touch ID feature. "If convenience is more important, Face ID may be your choice".

Apple's Face ID technology uses a TrueDepth camera system made up of a dot projector, infrared camera and flood illuminator, and is powered by A11 Bionic to accurately map and recognise a face.

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.

In 2008, Bkav was the first company in the world to show that face recognition was not an effective security measure for laptops when Toshiba, Lenovo and Asus used this technology for their products. Bkav added that they are also working on other versions of the technique that could make it easier to unlock someone's iPhone X. "This seems like an unlikely sequence of events", Norris said.

The new technology has passed nearly all the security tests with flying colours; until a security firm called Bkav allegedly created a mask to beat the FaceID.
