CyberLink is celebrating its perfect performance in a recent iBeta Presentation Attack Detection (PAD) test. The NIST-accredited lab evaluated CyberLink’s flagship FaceMe facial recognition engine, and reported that FaceMe was able to spot every single spoofing attempt that iBeta threw at the system.
The result indicates that FaceMe is compliant with the ISO-IEC 30107-3 standard. The engine passed Level 1 of iBeta’s PAD test, which assesses a solution’s ability to identify spoofing attacks carried out with photo and video materials. FaceMe’s perfects score corresponds to a 100 percent True Rejection Rate and a matching zero percent Attack Presentation Classification Error Rate. Those results reflect the engine’s performance on both iOS and Android devices.
According to CyberLink, the certification attests to the quality of its facial recognition system. FaceMe has consistently scored well in repeated rounds of NIST testing, and posted a top-six score in the one-to-many WILD evaluation back in January. That evaluation gauges a solution’s ability to identify faces in adverse environmental conditions.
CyberLink also landed in the top three in the anti-spoofing challenge at the International Conference on Computer Vision (ICCV) in July. The company has since upgraded its FaceMe Surveillance platform with a Monitor Add-on that makes it easier for security guards to keep tabs on multiple video streams.
“Preventing spoofing attacks is critical to the adoption of facial biometric technology in areas such as fintech and access control, where iron-clad identity protection is essential,” said CyberLink CEO Jau Huang. “We are honored to receive iBeta’s Presentation Attack Detection certification, which provides the assurance of its reliability in preventing unauthorized access through the use of spoofing techniques.”
CyberLink joins a growing list of companies that have obtained some form of PAD certification from iBeta. Imageware passed the Level 2 PAD test in August, while Innovatrics did the same all the way back in May.
