Face recognition (FR) systems have demonstrated outstanding verification performance, suggesting suitability for real-world applications ranging from photo tagging in social media to automated border control (ABC). In an advanced FR system with deep learning-based architecture, however, promoting the recognition efficiency alone is not sufficient, and the system should also withstand potential kinds of attacks designed to target its proficiency. Recent studies show that (deep) FR systems

In this article, we present a comprehensive survey on adversarial attacks against FR systems and elaborate on the competence of new countermeasures against them. Further, we propose a taxonomy of existing attack and defense methods based on different criteria. We compare attack methods on the orientation and attributes and defense approaches on the category. Finally, we explore the challenges and potential research direction.
