My Face is Your Face and also Their Faces, isn’t it?
Today’s topic is this intriguing report — “‘Master Face’: Researchers Say They’ve Found a Wildly Successful Bypass for Face Recognition Tech” https://gizmodo.com/master-face-researchers-say-theyve-found-a-wildly-succ-1847420710
It reads “computer scientists at Tel Aviv University in Israel say they have discovered a way to bypass a large percentage of facial recognition systems by basically faking your face. The team calls this method the “master face” (like a “master key,” harhar), which uses artificial intelligence technologies to create a facial template — one that can consistently juke and unlock identity verification systems.”
Those researchers have found a way, in our wording, “to drastically increase the False Acceptance Rate of face identification systems”, meaning that face biometrics, when used with a weak default password, would drastically destroy the defense that the weak default password has somehow provided,
The destruction mechanism is examined in this post — https://www.linkedin.com/posts/hitoshikokumai_identity-authentication-password-activity-6825637129641701376-XgjN">Biometrics is to Password what Back door is to Front door
