A lot of the technology I have is pretty old. I don’t know that I’ll ever go in for anything that gets unlocked with a fingerprint or my face (partly because these things can change).
And then you get stuff like this: Researchers create ‘master key’ fingerprints that can fool biometric databases
Researchers from New York University have created a set of master fingerprint keys that can be used to spoof biometric identification systems.
While the database of fingerprints used by the researchers had a chance of falsely matching with a random fingerprint one out of 1000 times, the master prints they generated had the power to falsely match one out of five times.
Which, like, great.
