Ombra, a Florida-based Service-Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) will conduct a thorough Feasibility Study to develop a Protecting Fingerprint Systems from Spoof Attacks (PFSSA) system for the Air Force and United States Special Operation Command (USSOCOM). Biometric systems are vulnerable to attacks using fake biometrics to obscure an individual’s natural biometric signature. Some attacks are difficult to observe visually. Presentation Attacks include presentation of an artifact or human characteristic to the biometric capture subsystem in a fashion that could interfere with the intended policy of the biometric system e.g. Spoofs, artefacts, altered biometrics, non-conformance, obfuscation. Our system will provide: Presentation Attack Detection (PAD) Sensor simultaneously captures a static image and color time-series fingerprint (FFR) Examples: liveness detection, altered fingerprint detection, anti-spoofing PFSSA is the product of years worth of research, 1000s of papers, and Clarkson lab tests. SOCOM PM-SSE fully supports the development for its $20 M/yr Program of Record.
