The papers in this special issue focus on automatic speaker veriﬁcation (ASV) technologies and applications for their use. ASV offers a low-cost and ﬂexible solution to biometric authentication. While there liability ofASV systems is now considered sufﬁcient to support mass-market adoption, there are concerns that the technology is vulnerable to spooﬁng, also referred to as presentation attacks. Spooﬁng refers to an attack whereby a fraudster attempts to manipulate a biometric system by masquerading as another, enrolled person. Replayed, synthesized and converted speech spooﬁng attacks can all be used to present high-quality, convincing speech signals which are representative of other, speciﬁc speakers and thus present a genuine threat to the reliability of ASV authentication systems.
