Iris liveness detection competition launched

20/05/13

The biometric industry's first ever dedicated iris liveness detection competition has been announced by an international group of researchers.

Clarkson University, Notre Dame University and Warsaw University of Technology say that the LivDet-Iris: Liveness Detection-Iris Competition 2013 will be held as part of the IEEE BTAS 2013.

According to Adam Czajka, Assistant Professor, Head, Biometrics Laboratory, Institute of Control and Computation Engineering Warsaw University of Technology Warsaw: "Presentation attacks are when an individual subverts the intended policy of the biometric system in order to hide their identity and/or pose as someone else. Liveness detection relates to methods which seek to recognize imitations of biometric characteristics to prevent from presentation attacks. The goal of Liveness Detection - Iris 2013 (LiveDet-Iris 2013) is to compare different methodologies for software and system-based iris liveness detection. The results of the competition will provide a reference point for academic and industrial research. While the competition does not grant certification on the quality of proposed solutions, results may impact the state of the art in the field."
