    Biometric systems on mobile devices are an
    increasingly ubiquitous method for identity verification. The
    majority of contemporary devices have an embedded fingerprint
    sensor which may be used for a variety of transactions including
    unlock a device or sanction a payment. In this study we explore
    how easy it is to successfully attack a fingerprint system using a
    fake finger manufactured from commonly available materials.
    Importantly our attackers were novices to producing the fingers
    and were also constrained by time. Our study shows the relative
    ease that modern devices can be attacked and the material
    combinations that lead to these attacks.
