image Manipulation Attack Resolving Solutions

Objective

Though difficult to quantify, the variety of possible ID document frauds at borders is a reality that threatens politicians holding responsibility for borders as well as EU citizens. Based on the needs expressed by practitioners, the iMARS consortium has shaped a project that will:
1/ improve the operational capacity of passport application and border control operators by providing both - short-term adhoc solutions ensuring reliable passport application procedures - and mid-term solutions with no-reference and differential analysis solutions that can in particular detect manipulated and morphed passport images as well as document fraud. iMARS will provide:
• Image morphing and manipulation attack detection solutions to assess ID documents validity against document fraud, during enrolment and renewal steps, as well as at the border crossing stations
• Document verification and fraud detection solutions to support border guards in the verification process by providing mobile tools that can check document’s integrity
To reach the targeted TRL6, these technologies will be validated in laboratory conditions using operational data collected from six border control sites (with border to countries outside EU).
2/ ensure the uptake of its outcomes after the project’s end. iMARS will:
• promote usability/ergonomic aspects by providing training, guidelines and best practices to border guards and passport application officers
• contribute to the ongoing standardisation efforts in the field of Presentation Attack Detection and face image quality
• provide open access benchmarks (2 datasets with multiple enrolment morphed face images and border gate probe images) on a specific testing platform serving follow-on research activities
• ensure that the technologies developed are accepted by citizens and respect privacy and legal EU regulations.
