    No, we are not talking about amusing apps that swap our relatives’ faces around, superimpose cute puppy-dog masks or display our unmistakable resemblance to a Hollywood star. When performed correctly, face morphing can pose a serious threat. A single passport, multiple identities Face morphing can be employed to assign multiple identities to a ...

    Passport photos at passport offices only? Criminals have been finding weaknesses in biometric photos for some time now. “Face morphing”, as it is called, plays not least into the hands of human smugglers. Fraunhofer IGD technology is helping uncover forged documents and ... pass through automatic passport controls at border crossings or airports. Sometimes, scammers even go so far as to employ what is known as “face morphing”: By combining two or even more faces, known points of comparison required by the identification algorithms of biometric systems ...

Fraunhofer IGD exposes face morphing At Fraunhofer IGD, the Smart Living & Biometric Technologies Competence Center is conducting researching into the area of face morphing. Face morphing makes it possible, for example, to reproduce multiple identities with a single passport. When morphing faces, known ...

    ... further information and contact persons. Dr. Naser Damer reports in an interview on the current research at the ATHENE Center on the subject of facemorphing. The German government has passed a draft law to the effect that passport photos will in future only be accepted digitally in order to increase security against forgery. In concrete terms, this is all about morphing: several faces are merged into one. Even if the introduction of the biometric passport photograph once greatly increased the security against forgery, a ...
