Recent Advances in Detecting Manipulation Attacks on Biometric Systems
IJCB 2023 - Special Session

Manipulated attacks in biometrics via modified images/videos and other
material-based techniques such as presentation attacks and deep fakes
have become a tremendous threat to the security world owing to
increasingly realistic spoofing methods. Hence, such manipulations
have triggered the need for research attention towards robust and
reliable methods for detecting biometric manipulation attacks. The
recent inclusion of manipulation/generation methods such as
auto-encoder and generative adversarial network approaches combined
with accurate localisation and perceptual learning objectives added an
extra challenge to such manipulation detection tasks. Due to this, the
performance of existing state-of-the-art manipulation detection
methods significantly degrades in unknown scenarios. Apart from this,
real-time processing, manipulation on low-quality medium, limited
availability of data, and inclusion of these manipulation detection
techniques for forensic investigation are yet to be widely
explored. Hence, this special session aims to profile recent
developments and push the border of the digital manipulation detection
technique on biometric systems.

We invite practitioners, researchers and engineers from biometrics,
signal processing, material science, mathematics, computer vision and
machine learning to contribute their expertise to underpin the
highlighted challenges. Further, this special session promotes
cross-disciplinary research by inviting the partitioner in the field
of psychology where one can perform the human observer (or
super-recogniser) analysis to detect attacks.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

?  Deepfake manipulation and detection technique

?  Novel generalised PAD to unknown attacks

?  Image manipulation techniques datasets

?  Database in image and video manipulation, and attacks

?  Privacy-preserving techniques in digital manipulation attack

?  Image and video synthesis in PAD

?  Image and video manipulation generation and detection

?  Human observer analysis in detecting the manipulated biometric

?  Novel sensors for detecting manipulated attacks

?  Bias analyses and mitigation in attack detection algorithms
