Will Our Body Be Our Password In The Future?

More than half of smartphone users look to get rid of the complex passwords and intend to delegate the task of identification of their fingerprint, or identification through the eye iris …

 

 

“The new code will be your body,” concludes the ConsumerLab of Ericsson, which over 15 years is based on annual interviews with 100,000 individuals in more than 40 countries and 15 cities. On the one hand the difficulty in memorizing increasingly complex passwords combining numbers, letters and symbols, and the growing necessity for the maintenance of accounts in a variety of services with different codes required for each, make the problem increasingly complex. This explains the growing interest, as the distinguished ConsumerLab, for biometric alternatives.

 

The survey research center showed that 52% of smartphone users want to use their fingerprints instead of passwords and 48% interest in the use of iris recognition to unlock the screen. 74% of users believe that biometric smartphones will rule in 2014. The degree of confidence shown by smartphone users in biometric security systems revealed by the finding that half would approve the charge of their credit card online with their fingerprint. Even more (61%) would do the same to unlock their smartphone which, it should be noted, can lead to a host of sensitive personal data.

 

At present, the only smartphone with biometric user identification method is the iPhone 5S. In the newest Apple iPhone and specifically to the unique key of the phone (Home button) incorporate a fingerprint recognition sensor called “TouchID”. The user can forget Apple ID and passcode and touch without the need to press key of the iPhone to recognize the system. A touch purchased from the iTunes Store, makes Apple assert that the photographs will be taken only by the reader and that  the Touch ID will not be stored on servers or copies . It will otherwise be kept in the online iCloud.

 

In addition, the user can allow access to more users of 5S with their fingerprint. The Touch ID takes high-resolution 500ppi-under the skin and 360 degrees and analyzed to yield unique identifier to the user, as explained by the company.

 

However, biometric systems are not considered a panacea. Already researchers have distinguishing vulnerabilities: With make-up, photos and recordings due biometric systems. Moreover, the introduction of a fingerprint reader on iPhone 5S is an enjoyable challenge for hackers everywhere
