Mask Beats iPhone X Face ID

Apple CEO Tim Cook holds an iPad during a presentation at Apple headquarters in Cupertino California

"Apple is working on a redesigned, high-end iPad for as early as 2018 that incorporates key iPhone X features such as slimmer edges and facial recognition, according to people familiar with the matter".

Face ID can adapt to sunglasses, scarves, and hats.

"They (Apple engineering teams) have even gone and worked with professional mask makers and makeup artists in Hollywood to protect against these attempts to beat Face ID".

Prime Minister Trudeau arrives in Philippines for Southeast Asian summit
President Widod and First Lady Iriana along with the entourage were greeted with "marching band" and typical Filipino dances. He praised India as a sovereign democracy with a population of over 1 billion as well as the largest democracy in the world.

Now, researchers at a security firm called Bkav claim to have "thwarted" Face ID by using a specially-built mask. Bkav, however, took a different approach. In the following demonstration video, they also showed the unlocking of an iPhone X for both the mask and the person. The security firm created a mask with a 3D-printed frame, which was then filled in with hand-crafted "skin" and other 3D-printed parts. Apart from unlocking the device, Face ID can also be used for payments, authentication, Apple Pay, and accessing securing apps as well.

"The mask is crafted by combining 3D printing with makeup and 2D images, besides some special processing on the cheeks and around the face, where there are large skin areas, to fool AI of Face ID", said Bkav vice president Ngo Tuan Anh. While apple says FaceID is foolproof, we think cracking into an iPhone X may not be as easy or cheap as it sounds.

With the advent of the iPhone X, Apple introduced its disruptive FaceID technology that identifies user's face to unlock the device, replacing the TouchID. The effort of creating the ideal mask to unlock the iPhone X, in addition to having to actually steal the smartphone in the first place, requires a significant payoff that will not be achieved when the victim is a private individual. The multitasking gestures along with Face Recognition or Face ID features will actually change the entire orientation of the iPad, especially with the top and bottom bezels shrunk.
