‘Spoofing’ of biometrics addressed by Biometrics Institute with release of ‘Top 10 Vulnerability Questions’ guidance
The Biometrics Institute has just released a detailed guidance document for members and key stakeholders entitled ‘Top 10 Vulnerability Questions’ in which the organisation duly provides clarification around some of the most frequently asked questions about the ‘spoofing’ of biometrics.
“We’ve been following the research of fake biometrics very closely and, indeed, with great interest,” commented Isabelle Moeller, CEO at the Biometrics Institute. “Recently, claims have been made that individuals can steal fingerprint detail using only a camera. This notion was presented at the Chaos Computer Club Conference in Germany last December.”
