IPhone X Face ID beaten with 3D-printed mask

Researchers at the security firm Bkav have claimed that they can fool Face ID with a custom-made mask. The mask was created by 3D-printing the face model and then using a special "skin" material that Face ID would recognize, while the eye portions are nothing more than 2D images.

In a video, the security firm shows the mask unlocking the iPhone X on its own, as well as when placed on a person's face.

While this proof of concept shows that something like this can work, it clear that this isn't a security risk for the average user.

Such sophisticated means to spoof the iPhone X Face ID means that regular iPhone X users would most likely not be the targets.

Padmavati row: Protests erupt in Gujarat, outside Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Mumbai office
With the Gujarat assembly poll in December, protesters also warned the ruling BJP of "consequences". A group of around 25 people protested outside Bhansali's office in suburban Juhu.

As Engadget reported, this is somewhat similar to when European hacker association Chaos Computer Club used a labour-intensive process requiring 2400 DPI photographs of a user's finger and a latex print to fool fingerprint recognition in 2013. Company Bkav was able to deceive a new development, as its professionals understand the principle of operation of Face ID and found a "loophole" in the development of Apple. But it looks like an equally big change will come in the iPad tablet series that will adopt some of the technologies that debuted on the iPhone X as well as the new "no-edge" design. Apple claims that the Face ID is the pretty secure and hardly one in a million can gain access to your phone by bypassing the same.

If the person looking to break in isn't anxious about subtlety, they could just physically force the user to unlock the biometric security anyways, or possibly scan the user's face while they were sleeping or incapacitated.

The actual cost of making the mask to fool the AI of Face ID is $150. But if you've got the nuclear codes, Bkav has provided slightly more evidence you shouldn't rely on face-based security. "It was even simpler than we ourselves had thought", Bkav said.
