For a robust face biometric system, a reliable anti-spoofing approach must be deployed to circumvent the print and replay attacks. Several techniques have been proposed to counter face spoofing, however a robust solution that is computationally efficient is still unavailable. This paper presents a new approach for spoofing detection in face videos using motion magnification. Eulerian motion magnification approach is used to enhance the facial expressions commonly exhibited by subjects in a captured video. Next, two types of feature extraction algorithms are proposed: (i) a configuration of LBP that provides improved performance compared to other computationally expensive texture based approaches and (ii) motion estimation approach using HOOF descriptor. On the Print Attack and Replay Attack spoofing datasets, the proposed framework improves the state-of-art performance, especially HOOF descriptor yielding a near perfect half total error rate of 0%and 1.25% respectively. © 2013 IEEE.
