If facial performance capture is possible for conventional RGB videos in real time, then believable facial expressions can be transferred effortlessly from one person to another in a live-action scenario. This capability is demonstrated …
Face2Face is an approach for real-time facial reenactment of a monocular target video sequence (e.g., Youtube video). Our goal is to animate the facial expressions of the target video by a source actor and re-render the manipulated …
"Imperfect Forward Secrecy: How Diffie-Hellman Fails in Practice," by David Adrian et al., illustrates the importance of taking preprocessing attacks into account when choosing cryptographic parameters.
We investigate the security of Diffie-Hellman key exchange as used in popular Internet protocols and find it to be less secure than widely believed.
