Universal Adversarial Perturbations Against Person Re-Identification

10/30/2019 ∙ by Wenjie Ding, et al. ∙ 8

Person re-identification (re-ID) has made great progress and achieved high performance in recent years with the development of deep learning. However, as an application related to security issues, there are few researches considering the safety of person re-ID systems. In this paper, we attempt to explore the robustness of current person re-ID models against adversarial samples. Specifically, we attack the re-ID models using universal adversarial perturbations (UAPs), which are especially dangerous to the surveillance systems because it could fool most pedestrian images with a little overhead. Existing methods for UAPs mainly consider classification models, while the tasks in open set scenarios like re-ID are rarely explored. Re-ID attack is different from classification ones in the sense that the former discards decision boundary during test and cares more about the ranking list. Therefore, we propose an effective method to train UAPs against person re-ID models from the global list-wise perspective. Furthermore, to increase the impact of attack to different models and datasets, we propose a novel UAPs learning method based on total variation minimization. Extensive experiments validate the effectiveness of our proposed method.
