Hacking Mobile Phones Using 2 D Printed Fingerprints

  title={Hacking Mobile Phones Using 2 D Printed Fingerprints},
  author={Kai Cao and Anil K. Jain},
Fingerprint is the most popular biometric trait due to the perceived uniqueness and persistence of friction ridge pattern on human fingers [1]. Following the introduction of iPhone 5S with Touch ID fingerprint sensor in September 2013, most of the mobile phones, such as iPhone 5s/6/6+, Samsung Galaxy S5/S6, HTC One Max, Huawei Honor 7, Meizu MX4 Pro and others, now come with embedded fingerprint sensors for phone unlock. It has been forecasted that 50% of smartphones sold by 2019 will have an… Expand
