IPhone X Face ID tricked by researchers with 3D printed mask

Facial recognition has shown its pitfalls in the past, with hackers tricking security by putting a photo over the camera.

"Potential targets shall not be regular users, but billionaires, leaders of major corporations, nations' leaders, and agents like Federal Bureau of Investigation need to understand the Face ID's issue", the company's researchers said.

Because Face ID runs on artificial intelligence that learns each time it's used, the algorithm could have been trained to learn the human's face based off the mask in reverse.

Bkav made a silicone nose and printed 2D images for the eyes to complete the 3D printed mask, which it says could be replicated by knowledgeable hackers with access to 3D scanners.

We also still don't know how legitimate Bkav's claims really are.

This tricked the supposedly most advanced feature in the iPhone X. And allowed the people to unlock the phone without the need of the owner's face.

Face ID is one of the headline features of the £1,000 iPhone X and can be used to unlock the device. At the time, Apple's senior VP of worldwide marketing, Phil Schiller, stated that "professional mask makers and makeup artists in Hollywood" had helped to "train the neural networks" of Face ID, making phone security more reliable than ever and nearly impossible to hack. We use 2D printing for other parts (similar to how we tricked Face Recognition 9 years ago).

On Friday, the researchers claimed to have been successful, and they published a video demonstrating their "proof of concept" hack, saying that Face ID is "not as secure" as Apple has suggested. While apple says FaceID is foolproof, we think cracking into an iPhone X may not be as easy or cheap as it sounds. "If convenience is more important, Face ID may be your choice".

But it seems that Face ID might not be infallible, from a security perspective.

The new technology has passed nearly all the security tests with flying colours; until a security firm called Bkav allegedly created a mask to beat the FaceID.

"Time and effort were involved in creating the mask that fooled the Face ID recognition software", says Paul Norris, senior systems engineer at Tripwire. That demonstration, which has yet to be confirmed publicly by other security researchers, could poke a hole in the expensive security of the iPhone X, particularly given that the researchers say their mask cost just $150 to make. The task required $150 in materials, but more importantly the subject's full cooperation to take detailed 3-D facial scans. The facial recognition is also disabled if the iPhone X hasn't been unlocked for more than two days.
