Face recognition is the technology that verifies or recognizes faces from images, videos, or real-time streams. It can be used in security or employee attendance systems. Face recognition systems may encounter some attacks that reduce their ability to recognize faces properly. So, many noisy images mixed with original ones lead to confusion in the results. Various attacks that exploit this weakness affect the face recognition systems such as Fast Gradient Sign Method (FGSM), Deep Fool, and
more » ... cted Gradient Descent (PGD). This paper proposes a method to protect the face recognition system against these attacks by distorting images through different attacks, then training the recognition deep network model, specifically Convolutional Neural Network (CNN), using the original and distorted images. Diverse experiments have been conducted using combinations of original and distorted images to test the effectiveness of the system. The system showed an accuracy of 93% using FGSM attack, 97% using deep fool, and 95% using PGD.
