Spoofing Challenge


The finalists of the SpeechXRays Spoofing Challenged organized on March 28th at the National Library of Physics, Magurele, presented their spoofing strategies in front of a jury presided by Claude BAUZOU from IDEMIA, coordinator of the SpeechXRays project. The five finalists were Denis Nichita, Sebastian Micluta-Campeanu, Alexandra Serban, Alexandru Michire, and Luca Mihailescu, all students of the Faculty of Physics University of Bucharest.The jury ofthe SpeechXRays Spoofing Challenged way impressed by the creativity and determination of the participants who tried to crack the system in countless ways, despite the timeframe of the challenge, which limited the attacks on the system to 48h. The participants in the SpeechXRays Spoofing Challenged proposed viable attacks vectors and even looked into how the spoofing countermeasures were engineered. None of the participants was able to fully spoof the system, but the finalists achieved partial success on either voice or face. Following a long deliberation, the jury of the SpeechXRays Spoofing Challenged awarded the Best Spoofing Award to Denis Nichita, while Sebastian Micluta-Campeanu, Alexandra Serban, Alexandru Michire, and Luca Mihailescu were each awarded a Honorable Mention.
