“Liveness detection”, a technique used to determine the vitality of a submitted biometric, has been implemented in fingerprint scanners in recent years. The goal for the LivDet 2011 competition is to compare software-based fingerprint liveness detection methodologies (Part 1), as well as fingerprint systems which incorporate liveness detection capabilities (Part 2), using a standardized testing protocol and large quantities of spoof and live fingerprint images. This competition was open to all academic and industrial institutions which have a solution for either software-based or system-based fingerprint vitality detection problem. Five submissions across the two parts of the competition resulted in successful completion. These submissions were: Chinese Academy of Sciences Institute of Automation (CASIA), Federico II University (Federico) and Dermalog Identification SystemsGmbH (Dermalog) for Part 1: Algorithms, and GreenBit and Dermalog for Part 2: Systems. Part 1 was evaluated using four different datasets. The best results were from Federico on the Digital Persona dataset with error for live and spoof detection of 6.2% and 11.61% respectively. The best overall results for Part 1 were Dermalog with 34.05 FerrFake and 11.825% FerrLive. Part 2 was evaluated using live subjects and spoof finger casts. The best results were from Dermalog with an error for live and spoof of 42.5% and 0.8%, respectively.
