The researchers say that they were able to spoof the iPhone X's 3D infrared mapping of the owner's face and its AI-driven modelling with a relatively basic mask - which had little more than some sculpted silicone, two-dimensional eyes and lips printed on paper.
A team of security researchers has succeeded in fooling Face ID by using a specially designed 3D-printed mask that costs just $150 to make. The company published a blog post and video showing a "proof of concept" on how they broke into an iPhone X using a simple technique. Apple will disable the Face ID after five attempts, and force the user to enter a passcode, which should be secure. "Many people in the world have tried different kinds of masks, but all failed", the posting states.
When it launched its new handset, the iPhone X, Apple claimed that its Face ID is basically impossible to bypass. The mask has been made with a combination of 3D printing and hand-modeled silicone. Instead, they focused on the features that needed to be valid for the actual authentication process - getting right the mask's eyes, nose, mouth, face shape, and relief.
Depending on your level of loyalty to Apple, Bkav's discovery might not have a whole lot of influence on whether or not you buy the iPhone X, but it's handy to know that the Face ID feature isn't totally robust.
Apple has worked with mask makers to make sure scenarios like these can't happen.
The next time you try to unlock your iPhone X with Face ID and it doesn't take, don't try to unlock it with Face ID a second time. He is also fanatical about football which makes it all the more odd that he should support Stockport County. One very creepy mask. The output was then transfered to latex that was used to unlock the phone.
"Potential targets shall not be regular users, but billionaires, leaders of major corporations, [and] nations' leaders", Bkav says. The technology didn't even fall for well-lit photographs or other faces that had similar features. Bkav explains the method requires detailed measurements or a scan of the user's face, making it too advanced for your average hacker to take advantage of.
These requirements to create the mask reach such a high standard that it seems like it would be nearly impossible to replicate this scenario in an actual attack.
Roy Hodgson wants Jack Wilshere at Crystal Palace?
But not from Wenger, a manager who has perfected the art of holding one's tongue during his 21 years in North London. That is likely to leave Wilshere looking at a permanent move away, something he is understood to be reluctant to do.
