Face recognition systems are used for user authentication in everyday applications such as logging into a laptop or smartphone without need to memorize a password. However, they are still vulnerable to spoofing attacks, as for example when an imposter gains access to a system by holding a printed photo of the rightful user in front of the camera. In this paper we are concerned with the design of face image databases for evaluating the performance of anti-spoofing algorithms against such attacks. We present a new database, supporting testing against an enhancement of the attack, where the imposter processes the stolen image before printing it. By testing a standard antispoofing algorithm on the new database we show a significant decrease in its performance and, as a simple remedy to this problem, we propose the inclusion of processed imposter images into the training set.
