For a robust face biometric system, a reliable anti-spoofing approach must be deployed to circumvent the print and replay attacks. Several techniques have been proposed to counter face spoofing, however a robust solution that is computationally efficient is still unavailable. This paper presents a new approach for spoofing detection in face videos using(More)
Face verification, though for humans seems to be an easy task, is a long-standing research area. With challenging covariates such as disguise or face obfuscation, automatically verifying the identity of a person is assumed to be very hard. This paper explores the feasibility of face verification under disguise variations using multi-spectrum (visible and(More)
Face verification, though an easy task for humans, is a long-standing open research area. This is largely due to the challenging covariates, such as disguise and aging, which make it very hard to accurately verify the identity of a person. This paper investigates human and machine performance for recognizing/verifying disguised faces. Performance is also(More)
Over the years, automatic gender recognition has been used in many applications. However, limited research has been done on analyzing gender recognition across ethnicity scenario. This research aims at studying the performance of discriminant functions including Principal Component Analysis, Linear Discriminant Analysis and Subclass Dis-criminant Analysis(More)
This research presents a forensics application of matching two latent fingerprints. In crime scene settings, it is often required to match multiple latent fingerprints. Unlike matching latent with inked or live fingerprints, this research problem is very challenging and requires proper analysis and attention. The contribution of this paper is three fold:(More)
—The advent of near infrared imagery and it's applications in face recognition has instigated research in cross spectral (visible to near infrared) matching. Existing research has focused on extracting textural features including variants of his-togram of oriented gradients. This paper focuses on studying the effectiveness of these features for cross(More)
