      spoof (n) – (earlier: a humorous imitation of something)

.

Now add to that spoof, spoofing and anti-spoofing (n):

   In biometrics: The imitating and stealing of people’s identities by accurately creating and reproducing a unique facsimile of their biological features such as face, eyes, or fingerprints that serve  as “keys” to unlock doors to private information or personal physical entry.

   Thanks to the iPhone X, facial recognition—the ability to detect someone’s identity based on facial characteristics—has become widespread. Now the challenge has come of attempting to use printed paper with faces, a cellphone playing videos of faces, and a 3-D mask based on the image or video output.

   So research has been begun to study this phenomenon. At Michigan State University (I’m a master’s degree alumnus) some work has been done to test against face spoofing, as well as iris (in the eye) spoofing using 3-dimensional viewing techniques. In particular, Xiaoming Liu, assistant professor of computer science and engineering, has looking for ways to prevent recreating people’s faces in order to assume their identity or access private information. It’s called face anti-spoofing.

   If spoofing activity is to occur, and it will, then anti-spoofing action must be taken.

   Says Liu, “Our framework is the best of its kind out there.”

    Quite detailed and fascinating stuff.¹
