Facial Presentation Attack Detection; fundamental concepts

As mobile phone based use cases for unsupervised customer/citizen onboarding and biometric authentication gain interest, there is a growing concern related to fraudulent usage of such applications.This concern is primarily based on the ease of spoofing such a system with a non-genuine biometric; in particular the use a picture or alternative representation of face to create a synthetic identity in a database, or to steal person’s identity by using a representation of their face to gain access to sensitive information or secure accounts.The ability to detect and to prevent these spoof attempts is an important design consideration for face based mobile biometric applications.This presentation introduces the fundamental concepts behind facial spoof detection, which is more properly known as facial “Presentation Attack Detection,” or facial PAD.
