VTV.vn - Bkav Corporation on Nov 15 held a demo, unveiling its ability to find a flaw in the iPhone X's facial recognition system Face ID, pointing out that it isn't as secure as Apple claims.

After launching iPhone X, Apple has said that the company worked with professional mask makers and makeup artists in Hollywood to protect against attempts at using masks to beat Face ID. However on November 10, a video by Bkav experts has shown that a 3D mask can easily bypass Face ID's security mechanism. At the event, Bkav's demonstration showed that with a mask crafted through a combination of 3D printing, 2D images and special processing methods, Bkav experts can beat Face ID on the iPhone X.

With Face ID defeated by the mask, Bkav experts recommend that national security organisations, national leaders, large corporations, and other high-profile individuals should be cautious. The exploitation of this device may be difficult for ordinary users, but it will be easy for professionals.
