IPhone X's Face ID gets conned by mask

It is said that they were able to gain access to the phones with high profile targets including political and business leaders. The nose was made by a handmade artist.

Soon after the launch of the iPhone X with Face ID, there were many speculations suggesting that Apple will implement the same technology in the upcoming iPhones slated to be launched next year. Apart from these, some special processing was done on the cheeks and 3D face where there are large skin areas that can fool the AI of the Face ID technology.

The Bkav security experts who also posted a video on how they did this, said that Face ID can be fooled by mask, which means it is not an effective security measure.

The company didn't specify how many attempts it took them to get past Apple's security, but they did write it cost around $US150 ($196) for parts not including a 3D printer.

The Ducks finished with 92 points, behind victor San Francisco with 59 points and runner-up Stanford with 76 points. The Washington men narrowly missed out on winning the whole race, losing to No. 6 Portland by just two points.

"In the future, we might use smartphones with 3D scanning capabilities (like Sony XZ1); or set up a room with a 3D scanner, a few seconds is enough for the scanning (here's an example of a 3D scanning booth)", it added. However, a security firm called Bkav has proved that the Face ID technology can be defeated and that it is not the most secure method to protect your device. The video shows that this proof of concept works. Apple announced on iPhone X debut that even Hollywood-quality masks can not fool its security system.

Rather than striving hard to develop a software to break iPhone X's Face ID, the team at Bkav built a special mask with the aim of tricking the depth-mapping technology.

According to the firm, the recognition mechanism is not as strict as one thinks and Apple seems to rely too much on Face ID's AI.

In fact, it also said that the fingerprint sensor which uses biometric security system is the better security measure as of now. And Face ID was not able to distinguish between the two.
