Scientists from the University Identification Technology Group at Carlos III University in Madrid are looking at ways that biometric systems can be compromised and ways to improve the security of the technology, according to a Physorg article.
The process, which is known as anti-spoofing, intends to assist biometrics developers by helping them consider all the ways the researchers can think of spoofing a system and build in anti-fraud measures for each one.
In addition to their anti-spoofing work, the researchers have also been testing existing system’s security strength and creating new algorithms and techniques to curb fraud.
The team has already tackled iris, written signatures and fingerprints with intentions on moving towards facial recognition system vulnerabilities soon.
