ROSE-Youtu Face Liveness Detection Dataset

We introduce a new and comprehensive face anti-spoofing database, ROSE-Youtu Face Liveness Detection Database, which covers a large variety of illumination conditions, camera models, and attack types. The ROSE-Youtu Face Liveness Detection Database (ROSE-Youtu) consists of 4225 videos with 25 subjects in total (3350 videos with 20 subjects publically available with 5.45GB in size).  It also includes a new Client-Specific One-Class Domain Adaptation Protocol with an additional 1.25GB of pre-processed data.

For each subject, there are 150-200 video clips with the average duration around 10 seconds. Five mobile phones were used to collect the database: (a) Hasee smart-phone (with resolution of 640 * 480), (b) Huawei Smart-phone (with resolution of 640 * 480), (c) iPad 4 (with resolution of 640 * 480), (d) iPhone 5s (with resolution of 1280 * 720) and (e) ZTE smart-phone (with resolution of 1280 * 720). All face videos are captured by a front-facing camera. The standoff distance between face and camera is about 30-50 cm.

For genuine face video, normally there are 25 videos (5 devices with 5 scenes). The scene covers 5 different illumination conditions in office environment. If the client wears eye-glasses, there will be another 25 videos.

We consider three spoofing attack types including printed paper attack, video replay attack, and masking attack. For printed paper attack, face image with still printed paper and quivering printed paper (A4 size) are used. For video replay attack, we display a face video on Lenovo LCD screen and Mac screen. For masking attack, masks with and without cropping are considered. Moreover, the face videos are captured with different backgrounds which guarantee the face videos are coupled with different illumination conditions. To keep consistent with the genuine face video, the standoff distance between spoofing medium and camera is also about 30-50 cm.


Evaluation Protocols

1. Intra-dataset Evaluation Protocol

We divide the ROSE-Youtu Database into training and testing subsets. Videos belonging to the first 10 indexed subjects (2,3,4,5,6,7,9,10,11,12) are used for training and the others are for testing.

Please see the table below regarding the evaluation based on ROSE-Youtu database. The performance is measured by Equal Error Rate (EER).

2. Client-Specific One-Class Domain Adaptation Protocol (NEW)

We sample 10 subjects (clients) from the ROSE-Youtu Database and devise a client-specific one-class domain adaptation task with each client.

Each task contains 50 genuine face videos and 110 attack videos. We uniformly divide 25 genuine face videos as training (adaptation) videos. The remaining 25 genuine face videos together with all of 110 attack videos are divided as testing videos. We sample 1 frame from each training video as the training (adaptation) data. And we sample 50 frames from each testing video as testing data. (The pre-processed data are provided.)

Examples of ROSE-Youtu Face Liveness Detection Database (ROSE-Youtu)

From top to bottom: face images in genuine, cropped mask, full mask, upper mask, paper print and video replay versions. (For paper print attack, both warped paper and still paper attacks are considered.) From left to right: face images captured by iPhone 5S, Hasee mobile phone, Huawei mobile phone, iPad and ZTE mobile phone.

  1. 1. The first section ‘L’ could by any one of the follow 9 strings:
    1. 1) G - ‘G’ indicates a genuine person.
    2. 2) Ps - ‘Ps’ indicates a still printed paper.
    3. 3) Pq - ‘Pq’ indicates a quivering printed paper.
    4. 4) Vl - ‘Vl’ indicates a video which records a lenovo LCD display.
    5. 5) Vm - ‘Vm’ indicates a video which records a Mac LCD display.
    6. 6) Mc - ‘Mc’ indicates a paper mask with two eyes and mouth cropped out.
    7. 7) Mf - ‘Mf’ indicates a paper mask without cropping.
    8. 8) Mu - ‘Mu’ indicates a paper mask with the upper part cut in the middle.
    9. 9) Ml - ‘Ml’ indicates a paper mask with the lower part cut in the middle.
  2. 2. The second section ‘S’ could be any one of the follow 2 strings:
