Deepfakes: The next biometric presentation attacks?

In Biometrics, presentation attacks are now widely accepted to be of two kinds: impersonation, where the attacker attempts to impersonate the victim, and obfuscation, where the goal of the attacker is to avoid being recognised. The vulnerability of state-of-the-art recognition to presentation attacks (PA) have been already demonstrated and presentation attack detection (PAD) is now a growing research topic. In this talk we will quickly review PA techniques published in the literature mostly for face recognition, present their vulnerabilities and discuss Deepfakes as the next PA.
