Biometrics Vulnerabilities Workshop – how robust is your system?

19 November 2019, 14:00-17:00

This half day workshop, held in Canberra, in conjunction with Showcase Australia and will focus on:

Biometric Vulnerabilities – how robust is your system?

  • What biometric vulnerabilities do you need to be aware of?
  • What does Presentation Attack Detection (PAD) and Liveness mean?
  • What accreditation is available to trust the biometric systems? What does FIDO offer?
  • Why testing is important
  • Red-teaming

Who should attend: end-users, integrators and others interested in understanding spoofing, liveness and presentation attack detection. The workshop will be focused on educating those that are implementing biometrics about the critical aspects of biometric vulnerability.

The Biometrics Institute lead the discussion around biometrics vulnerabilities in 2010 when it formed an international expert group, the BVAEG now renamed to Biometric Security & Integrity Group BSIEG, to raise awareness about vulnerabilities, promote the development of standards and find ways to mitigate the risks.

It has published several information papers on vulnerabilities and liveness to help its members and stakeholders understand the challenges and solutions better.

This workshop will provide the opportunity to meet to real experts in this field and engage in open dialogue about biometrics vulnerabilities.


Ted Dunstone is the head of Security and Integrity Expert Group (BSIEG) of the Biometrics Institute and its founder. He is also the CEO and founder of Biometix and independent biometrics consulting firm. 

He has been involved with biometrics and authentication for over fifteen years, both academically and commercially, and has specialized in the government use and analysis of biometric identity systems.

Ted is the co-author of the first dedicated book on data analysis and biometrics: Biometric System and Data Design.
