IPhone X Face ID Hack Demoed by Vietnam Researcher

IPhone X Face ID Hack Demoed by Vietnam Researcher

Bkav, a Vietnam-based cybersecurity firm, announced Friday that it has cracked Apple's Face ID biometric security feature on iPhone X.

Speaking at the iPhone X launch event in September, Apple's Senior Vice President Phil Schiller said: "They [Apple workers] have even gone and worked with professional mask makers and makeup artists in Hollywood to protect against these attempts to beat Face ID".

While the creepy half-face mask does indeed appear to have unlocked the iPhone X in the video easily, it's not entirely clear if this test shows that anyone could potentially have their phone broken into with a few hours of arts and crafts work.

"We were sitting down in our bedroom and were just done setting up the Face IDs, our 10-year-old son walked in anxious to get his hands on the new iPhone X", Malik wrote.

Even Apple had previously admitted the new face ID feature is morefor convenience than absolute security.

The company behind the video, Bkav have revealed more details about how they tricked Apple's Face ID with a mask.

Chevrolet is kicking off the week by crowning a new king, one that is now "stronger than ever", in the 2019 Corvette ZR1 . Both of the ZR1's wings are tied into the chassis, like the Corvette Racing C7.R racecar, for strength and stability.

"After almost 10 years of development, face recognition is not mature enough to guarantee security for computers and smartphones", the researchers warned.

The iPhone X is the first iPhone on the market with Face ID facial recognition technology.

After the mother reregistered her face under different lighting, her son was no longer able to unlock her phone.

The firm is launching its own facial recognition technology named ZoOm Login which provides ultra-secure face authentication by matching the user via recognition algorithms and verifying 3D liveness via AI.

The sibling unlocked the iPhone X with the Face ID twice. A stylus called the "Apple Pencil" was also reported to be in progress and is expected to launch along with the new tablet. Besides, it requires the dimensions of a person's face and detailed imagery. A person has to take an accurate scan of your face, make a mask, and then be able to steal your phone. Bkav added that they are also working on other versions of the technique that could make it easier to unlock someone's iPhone X. It has a attractive bezel-less OLED display, Face ID, wireless charging, augmented reality, a powerful A11 Bionic processor, Portrait Lighting, and many other features.
