Vice President, cyber security Bkav said: "the Mask created by combining three-dimensional printing with makeup and 2D images, in addition to cheeks on the area around the face succumbed to special treatment". The nose was made by a handmade artist. In a video released this weekend, Bkav researchers showed off how the specially constructed face was able to unlock a brand-new device.
Other suppliers, including LG Electronics, Japan Display, Sharp, and smaller China-based firms like BOE Display and Tianma Microelectronics are also unlikely to have the ability to supply tablet-sized OLED screens to Apple next year, other people familiar within the supply chain said.
The cost of making the mask is about $150 and it can be used to gain access to the phones of high profile targets such as business and political leaders.
If the person looking to break in isn't anxious about subtlety, they could just physically force the user to unlock the biometric security anyways, or possibly scan the user's face while they were sleeping or incapacitated.
Bkav says that it had created a fake mask that is made up of different materials meant for the different parts of the face. "It was even simpler than we ourselves had thought", Bkav said.
"Potential targets shall not be regular users, but billionaires, leaders of major corporations, nation leaders and agents like Federal Bureau of Investigation need to understand the Face ID's issue". The video shows that this proof of concept works.
As for biometric security, fingerprint is the best, said the firm which discovered the first critical flaw in Google Chrome just days after its launch in 2008.
