‘Fail’ is Less Detrimental than ‘Destroy’

Windows passwordless authentication will fail, say researchers

This is a good report under the current circumstances.

It would have been even better if it had referred to the more serious problem of their approach, that is, the security-destroying and democracy-eroding effects of having the password removed.

I also wish that the report had taken up the security-lowering effect of biometrics used with another authenticator in the in-parallel/two-entrance formation (as against in-series/two-layer formation) in case of false rejection of biometrics.
