Facial recognition systems are among the most widely deployed in biometric applications. However, such systems are vulnerable to presentation attacks (spoofing), where a person tries to disguise as someone else by mimicking their biometric data and thereby gaining access to the system. Significant research attention has been directed toward developing robust strategies for detecting such attacks and thus assuring the security of these systems in real-world applications. This thesis is focused on presentation attack detection for face recognition systems using a gaze tracking approach.

A number of novel gaze-based features were explored to develop the presentation attack detection algorithm. Initial experiments using the KGDD provided an encouraging indication of the potential of the proposed system for attack detection. In order to explore the feasibility of the scheme on a real hand held device, another database, the Mobile KGDD (MKGDD), was collected from 30 participants using a single mobile device (Google Nexus 6), to test the proposed features.

Comprehensive experimental analysis has been performed on the two collected databases for each of the proposed features. Performance evaluation results indicate that the proposed gaze-based features are effective in discriminating between genuine and presentation attack attempts.
