Liveness Detection

Biometric liveness refers to the use of computer vision technology to detect the genuine presence of a living user, rather than a representation such as a photograph or a mask. Presentation attack detection (PAD) technologies can utilize active or passive detection methods. Typically associated with facial recognition, liveness can also be applied to voice recognition to distinguish present speakers from audio recordings, and finger or palm biometrics such as by detecting blood flow, and even iris recognition.
