Paper 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.
