Face ID just got Hacked with the help of a mask by a security firm

Apple uses the Tenth Anniversary iPhone X Phone to replace Touch ID. Because the award handset features an edge-to-edge protection and has very slim bezels, Apple had to get up with a way to reinstate the fingerprint scanner that powers Touch ID. So the group in Cupertino decided to use a facial identification system to unlock the device and verify Apple Pay purchases.

Apple requires that Face ID is so tight that the odds of a random character using their face to break into someone’s iPhone X are one in one million. Bkav says that because it learns how AI works on Face ID, it was able to avoid the feature and trick it. Different elements were used to create certain areas of the party. For example, silicone was used for the nose and 3D printing was used in other areas. The contracting firm says that Apple is relying too greatly on the feature’s Artificial Intelligence.

The mask cost $150 to make, and Bkav says that with its experience to break into the iPhone X, the mask could be practiced to learn personal secrets from political leaders, business executives, and billionaires. The firm says that facial acknowledgment is not a good security tool and says that when it comes to biometrics, a fingerprint scanner is the best way to keep intruders from crashing into your phone.

“The mask is crafted by combining 3D printing with a plan and 2D images, besides some special processing on the faces and around the face, where there are large skin areas, to fool AI of Face ID.”-Ngo Tuan Anh, Vice President of Cyber Security, Bkav
