Vietnamese cybersecurity firm Bkav, who previously created a mask that was capable of breaching Face ID, has come up with another project that it calls "artificial twin" and demonstrates that it's very easy to bypass the biometric system on the new flagship. This means that Face ID must detect that the user is looking at the camera in order for the iPhone X to be unlocked. The video also did not showcase the original Face ID enrollment process - Bkav could have easily registered the mask as the original user.
Funnily enough, this latest experiment was actually a direct response to Apple, which claimed upon the iPhone X's launch that Face ID could probably only be hacked if you happened to have an "evil twin". Also, the security firm used the same technology that Face ID uses which is printed infrared images for the eyes.
In the video above you will see the mask is made up of stone powder with the 2D infrared images of the eyes taped to the mask which mimics a real face and is used to unlock the iPhone X. Face ID is enabled during the video to show that is in fact his real face used during setup and then unlocked via the mask.
It is quite a bummer that sometimes Face ID fails to recognize you even when you satisfy both these conditions and you have to enter the passcode to get access.
So the basic intention of making the videos is to seek the attention of the Apple fans and convince them what they can do with Face ID, and believe in Apple's idea of ditching the Touch ID.
After proving the system is working normally by using his own face, the demonstrator holds the iPhone X in front of the mask and the phone unlocks. However, at that time, questions were raised whether the company had turned the Face ID's "Required Attention" feature on or not. Here, Bkav is employing the theory of how twins unlocked the iPhone X.
"About 2 weeks ago, we recommended that only very important people such as national leaders, large corporation leaders, billionaires, etc. should be cautious when using Face ID", the researchers said in a blog post.
This is not the first time Face ID has been fooled.
