Picture ID Authentication Using Invisible Watermark and Facial Recognition Features

Wensheng Zhou, Hua Xie

Abstract

Picture ID authentication is very important for any identification verifications and extremely critical for homeland security. Here we propose a unique picture ID authentication apparatus which combines invisible watermark embedding and detection technology with facial recognition techniques. To demonstrate this apparatus, we implemented a system that is capable of fast and secure verification on the integrity and authenticity of ID documents with face images for Boeing. The proposed invisible watermarks tolerate most-common attacks such as recompression. We believe with only minor improvement this picture ID authentication system can be deployed in real environment at airports and country borders.
