While biometrics technology has revolutionized approaches to person authentication and has evolved to play a
critical role in personal, national and global security, the potential for the technology to be fooled or 'spoofed' is
widely acknowledged. Efforts to study such threats and to develop countermeasures are now well underway
resulting in some promising solutions. While progress with respect to each biometric modality has attained varying
degrees of maturity, there are some notable shortcomings in research methodologies. Current spoofing studies
focus on specific, known attacks. Existing countermeasures designed to detect and deflect such attacks are often
based on unrealistic a priori knowledge and typically learned using training data produced using exactly the same
spoofing method that is to be detected. Current countermeasures thus have questionable application in practical
scenarios where the nature of the attack can never be known. This special issue will focus on the latest research on
the topic of biometric spoofing and countermeasures, with a particular emphasis on novel methodologies and
generalized spoofing countermeasures that have the potential to protect biometric systems against varying or
previously unseen attacks. The aim is to further the state-of-the-art in this field, to stimulate interactions between
the biometrics and information forensic communities, to encourage the development of reliable methodologies in
spoofing and countermeasure assessment and solutions, and to promote the development of generalized
countermeasures.
Papers on biometric obfuscation (e.g., fingerprint or face alteration) and relevant
countermeasures will also be considered in the special issue. Novel contributions related to both traditional
biometric modalities such as face, iris, fingerprint, and voice, and other modalities such as vasculature and
electrophysiological signals will be considered. The focus includes, but is not limited to, the following topics
related to spoofing and anti-spoofing countermeasures in biometrics:
*
*
*
*

* vulnerability analysis with an emphasis on
previously unconsidered spoofing attacks;
* theoretical models for attack vectors;
* advanced machine learning and pattern
recognition algorithms for anti-spoofing;
* information theoretic approaches to quantify
spoofing vulnerability;
* spoofing and anti-spoofing in mobile devices;
* generalized countermeasures;

*

*

challenge-response countermeasures;
sensor-based solutions to spoof attacks;
biometric obfuscation schemes;
information forensic approaches to spoofing
detection;
new evaluation protocols, datasets, and
performance metrics;
reproducible research (public databases, open
source software and experimental setups).
