Even Weaker than Very Weak
I have, by chance, found this 8-month-old report, which is never stale and absolutely intriguing.
This kind of reports tell us very powerfully that biometrics is not so secure and helpful as the pro-biometrics folks claim it to be.
However, actually, there is more to it in our world. That is, biometrics destroys the security that a password/pincode authentication has somehow provided so far, as analysed in this 2-minute video — Biometrics in Cyber Space — “below-one” factor authentication https://lnkd.in/eeci-Y7
Where a very weak password/pincode is registered as a default login means, biometrics added as a backdoor would provide a further weakened user authentication as the result of enlarged attack surface, say, even weaker than very weak.
And, alas, many of the users stay trapped in a false sense of security while security-savvy criminals quietly chuckling to themselves. Should your curiosity get turned on, please refer to “Step-by-Step Analysis of Why and How Biometrics Brings Down Security”
