From Antispoofing Wiki

The AntiSpoofing Wiki project is a niche analog of Wikipedia on biometric anti-spoofing. Antispoofing refers to protection against cyber-attacks in which a scammer identifies him/herself as another person with the aim of getting access to critical data or information. Alternatively, a scammer can also try to generate a completely non-existent personality. Spoofing (spoofing attacks) can be carried out through websites, mobile apps, video calls, audio messages, etc.

The primary objective of biometric spoofing is to gain access to personal or other critical data, theft, financial fraud, and hacking of a network access control secured with a biometric system. Therefore, protective methods, also called antispoofing techniques, are put in place to prevent such attacks. For more information on biometric antispoofing, please refer to the first article on our Wiki - Anti-Spoofing & Liveness Detection. The site has multiple articles that provide further insights on this topic.

  1. Anti-spoofing

  3. Methods to combat attacks
