FAQ

The registration form has a checkbox for anonymous participation. If we register non-anonymous will we be able to change this status later?Anonymous/non-anonymous status may be changed up until the time of submission. After that point, participants must choose to be anonymous or non-anonymous.

Algorithm Competition

  1. Where do I set the threshold?
    50
  2. In what range the score should be?
    0 to 100
  3. Spoof: <50 ; Live: 50-100
  4. What is my output is binary?
    Convert to 0/100 0: Spoof ; 1: Live
  5. Do I have to submit in BEAT?
    You can submit manually, but the submission will not be part of competition. However, the results would be put on the publication. For more detailed instruction please contact via email- datasets@livdet.org
  6. How to set up in BEAT?
    Please follow this link for setting up your algorithm in the BEAT platform . More information about the setup is coming soon!
  7. What is the input image extension?
    All test samples will have ‘.png’ extension.
  8. Do I have to use the training database?
    No. You can use any other source of data for training.

Systems Competition

9. Do you require that a system store an image?
If the system is able to generate a liveness score for the presented iris or spoof then a stored image is required. If the system cannot sense that a iris or spoof is presented to the device then no image can be stored and then a non-response is recorded.
10. What happens with non-response?
In the table we will separate FerrFake, FerrLive, Fake Non-Response Rate and Failure to acquire. For a system the ability to not acquire a spoof will be considered correct rejection of a fake and calculated as the Fake Non-Response Rate . The ability to not acquire a live iris will be considered incorrect rejection of a live iris and calculated as the Failure to Acquire rates. In computing the overall average and overall winner, Fake Non-Response rate and Failure to Acquire will be considered.
