Biometric Passwords… Again

About a month ago, we posted some Thoughts on Biometric Passwords. Yesterday, Kim Cameron’s Identity Weblog unveiled how vulnerable fingerprints are… in photographs.

Identityblog.comIt hit me that in the age of digital photography, a properly motivated photographer could probably find fingerprints on all kinds of surfaces, and capture them as expertly as Dale did. I realized it was no longer necessary to use special powder or inks or tape or whatever. Fingerprints have become a thing of “sousveillance”.

If you have not checked out Kim’s blog yet, but are interested in Digital Identity and the technology behind it, I highly recommend stopping by: http://www.identityblog.com/home.php/.
