ESR6: Biometric Identity Hiding, Obfuscation and De-identification
This specific project will investigate emerging and future approaches to sensor-level identity hiding. Examples of identity hiding include wearing a hat or using makeup to render facial detection and recognition problematic. Alternatively, direct interference with the sensor involves techniques such as projecting noise signals to directly interfere with the biometric sub-system. The project will seek to evaluate what is i) possible now, and also in the future, and ii) how the performance of such approaches can be evaluated. These will be topics for research in this project across a range of modalities including face/iris, gate and voice.
