A spoof is a counterfeit biometric that is used in an attempt to circumvent a biometric sensor. Differentiating a genuine biometric trait presented from a live person versus some other source is called spoof detection (anti-spoofing). The fingerprint liveness detection refers to the inspection of the finger characteristics to ensure whether the input finger is live or artificial. There are two major approaches for liveness detection, which are reported in literature are using the additional hardware and software based techniques. In this paper, various fingerprint liveness detection methods, which are categorized as voluntary and involuntary, are explored. The main objective of this paper is to propose a method to spoof a fingerprint sensor using a mold made by a material i.e. fevicol.
