AI Can Create Fake Fingerprints to Fool Bio-metric Systems


Scientists have developed an artificial intelligence tool that can synthesise fake human fingerprints and potentially fool biometric authentication systems.

Fingerprint authentication systems are a widely trusted, ubiquitous form of biometric authentication, deployed on billions of smartphones and other devices worldwide. However, researchers from New York University (NYU) in the US revealed a surprising level of vulnerability in these systems.

Using a neural network, they evolved a fake fingerprint that could fool biometric authentication for one in five people. Much the way that a master key can unlock every door in a building, these "DeepMasterPrints" use artificial intelligence to match a large number of prints stored in fingerprint databases and could thus theoretically unlock a large number of devices
