About this book

The third edition of this authoritative and comprehensive handbook is the definitive work on the current state of the art of Biometric Presentation Attack Detection (PAD) – also known as Biometric Anti-Spoofing. Building on the success of the previous editions, this thoroughly updated third edition has been considerably revised to provide even greater coverage of PAD methods, spanning biometrics systems based on face, fingerprint, iris, voice, vein, and signature recognition. New material is also included on major PAD competitions, important databases for research, and on the impact of recent international legislation. Valuable insights are supplied by a selection of leading experts in the field, complete with results from reproducible research, supported by source code and further information available at an associated website.

Topics and features: reviews the latest developments in PAD for fingerprint biometrics, covering recent technologies like Vision Transformers, and review of competition series; examines methods for PAD in iris recognition systems, the use of pupil size measurement or multiple spectra for this purpose; discusses advancements in PAD methods for face recognition-based biometrics, such as recent progress on detection of 3D facial masks and the use of multiple spectra with Deep Neural Networks; presents an analysis of PAD for automatic speaker recognition (ASV), including a study of the generalization to unseen attacks; describes the results yielded by key competitions on fingerprint liveness detection, iris liveness detection, and face anti-spoofing; provides analyses of PAD in finger-vein recognition, in signature biometrics, and in mobile biometrics; includes coverage of international standards in PAD and legal aspects of image manipulations like morphing.This text/reference is essential reading for anyone involved in biometric identity verification, be they students, researchers, practitioners, engineers, or technology consultants. Those new to the field will also benefit from a number of introductory chapters, outlining the basics for the most important biometrics.
