Machine Learning Can Create Fake ‘Master Key’ Fingerprints

JUST LIKE ANY lock can be picked, any biometric scanner can be fooled. Researchers have shown for years that the popular fingerprint sensors used to guard smartphones can be tricked sometimes, using a lifted print or a person's digitized fingerprint data. But new findings from computer scientists at New York University's Tandon School of Engineering could raise the stakes significantly. READ MORE ON: WIRED
