Biometric system provides a way of automatic verification or identification a person. But nowadays due to lack of secrecy, there is lot of security threat due to spoofing. Spoofing with photograph or video is one of the most common manners to attack a face recognition system. Liveness detection is a technique that can be used for validating whether the data originate is from a valid user or not. Liveness detection can be hardware based or software based or a combination of both. In this paper, the authors present a non intrusive and real time method to address this problem, based on skin elasticity of human face.
