Apple’s iPhoneX Face ID feature recently made headlines, but for reasons that questions the security of their cutting edge technology.  A Vietnam research firm, Bkav, claims that they have successfully fooled Apple’s latest facial recognition system, Face ID. According to the firm, the mask used to fool the system is crafted by combining 3D printing with makeup and 2D images, in addition to some special processing on the cheeks and around the face, where there are large skin areas, to fool the AI of Face ID.

This display of sorcery by Bkav reinforces the importance of practicing sound security practices to avoid cyber crimes. We instill a lot of trust in companies like Apple, but companies need to instill that same level of trust in their end users who will be accessing sensitive business information on a daily basis.
