I'm building an application where face recognition is going to use for password-less authentication. Could anyone please help me to integrated openCV into iPhone app.

sounds like a terrible (app-coder) idea. don't do that.

face recognition in a cellphone as authentication, is probably not a good idea, simply because the available implementations are far to easy to cheat on :) It is basically one of the main reasons why cell phone providers like samsung and apple left that out quite fast, and are now focussing more and more on biometrics like fingerprints and iris.

So you want to allow someone with a picture of you to open your phone? There are more secure ways, like Steven mentioned.

@jmbapps, thats maybe a bit crude. It is fairly easy to tell if its a picture or if it is a person these days with modern algorithms :P these are ofcourse not included in OpenCV hehe

let me say it in a most brutal way: this person above MUST NOT BE ALLOWED to mess with other folks security at all.

Haha! My comment was a bit tongue in cheek....but the meaning was there. Two other problems..the Face Off machine.....and the masks on Mission Impossible. ;o) Have a good weekend all!
