Security Firm Claims to have Cracked iPhoneX's FaceID System

They offered some details about the mask, saying that a handmade artist developed the nose. However, the security agency has not detailed the process of how they went about training the iPhone X with the original victim's face and then spoofed it with a 3D mask.

Face ID allows a user to unlock their iPhone X, make purchases from various Apple digital stores and authenticate Apple Pay transactions to pay using stored payment card data. "[Apple engineering teams] have even gone and worked with professional mask makers and makeup artists in Hollywood to protect against these attempts to beat Face ID", said Apple senior vice president Phil Schiller, at the iPhone X launch event. The researchers found that large portions of the face did not have to accurately depict the subject in order for Face ID to successfully unlock. Apple announced on iPhone X debut that even Hollywood-quality masks can not fool its security system. FaceID, the face-scanning technology used in the phone to detect your face and unlock the device, is apparently not as secure as Apple has claimed.

The managed to deceive Apple's Face ID authentication system from its iPhone X. They also argued that this technology is not mature enough to guarantee complete security for the new smartphones.

The device has been creating headlines for the past few days while its launch is slated to happen on November 16 . It runs on a Snapdragon 835 processor that's mated to either 6GB or 8GB of LPDDR4X RAM.

The company released a video, in which a company staff member pulls off a cloth from a face mask which is placed in front of the iPhone X. The phone instantly unlocks when the mask is placed in front of it. 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 company says potential targets of this type of attack could be "billionaires, leaders of major corporations, [national] leaders.". "Exploitation is hard for normal users, but simple for professional ones".

"It means the recognition mechanism is not as strict as you think, Apple seems to rely too much on Face ID's AI". Key areas, like the eyes and mouth, were actually recreated with 2D photos pasted onto the 3D surface.

Several experts in Chinese law said charges and accompanying punishment will dependent on the value of the stolen goods . They were released on bail early Wednesday morning and have been staying at a lakeside hotel in Hangzhou since then.

Expect Apple to issue an update for the Face ID software or new generations of the iPhone with hardware created to block these circumvention techniques.

Without further testing it's not possible to corroborate this claim, but given that both these methods require a back-up PIN or password you might be best off skipping biometric security altogether if the contents of your iPhone are that sensitive. "It was even simpler than we ourselves had thought".
