Apple Face ID

During the Black Hat conference in Las Vegas, researchers showed a method to bypass face recognition through FaceID. The test was based on simulating a person’s eyes by attaching a small white ribbon to a larger black one. In turn, gluing them onto the lenses of a pair of glasses.

The trick will only work if the victim is wearing these special glasses. As the eye abstraction for detection generates a black area with a white dot in the center (simulates the eye). Wearing glasses, FaceID modifies the way the liveness detection scans the eyes, “not extracting 3D information from the eye area “.
