Apple's Face ID technology uses a TrueDepth camera system made up of a dot projector, infrared camera and flood illuminator, and is powered by A11 Bionic to accurately map and recognise a face. The mask was not created with a focus on realism. The tech giant says that while the facial recognition system is intended for convenience rather than absolute security, it's less vulnerable than its Touch ID predecessor - though testing has shown that the system generally works, but has a number of faults and unexpected behaviours. We use 2D printing for other parts (similar to how we tricked Face Recognition nine years ago).

While this proof of concept shows that something like this can work, it clear that this isn't a security risk for the average user.

Apple has completely changed the smartphone series with the new iPhone X, and the new design will also be retained on future models. The mask had sculpted silicone nose, two dimensional eyes and lips printed on paper which were mounted on a 3D printed plastic frame.

It is clear that this mask is unlikely to be used against regular users, however, heads of major corporations, heads of state and the Federal Bureau of Investigation should be notified about this vulnerability Apple Face ID.


So should iPhone X users be anxious? Apple claims that the Face ID is the pretty secure and hardly one in a million can gain access to your phone by bypassing the same.

However, the security firm feels that as a biometric security tool, Face ID relies too much on artificial intelligence, and that fingerprint scanners are much closer to foolproof.

If the person looking to break in isn't anxious about subtlety, they could just physically force the user to unlock the biometric security anyways, or possibly scan the user's face while they were sleeping or incapacitated.

Either way, the mask method doesn't invalidate Face ID's utility for users willing to trade a little security for a little convenience.
