Re: Biometrics

Biometrics security is about the use of biological characteristics in computer security systems, right ?

A few ideas (I am no expert in biometrics, though):

- High reliability linked to the fact that biometrics offer a quasi-infinite number of possibilities (in terms of configurations, e.g. fingerprints)
- Risk number 1: how safe is the underlying hardware ? (i.e. a security system based on biometrics need not be hackable hardware-wise)
- Risk number 2: could someone be physically constrained to log in using a biometrics system ?

Re: Biometrics

I don't believe software reliability is an issue here ... I more tend to think that a hacker would bypass the scanner altogether and thus the authentication protocol.
