Negatively Effective Authenticator
Taken up today is this report — “Could biometrics bridge the financial exclusion gap?” https://www.biometricupdate.com/202112/could-biometrics-bridge-the-financial-exclusion-gap
This report is typically one of the numerous biometrics articles written on the assumption that biometrics contributes to identity security, if not so much as had been claimed.
It’s no surprise for a number of people to make such assumptions so credulously; it would not be easy for most people to suspect that there can be an authentication factor that does not contribute to identity security.
However, there exists an ‘authenticator’ indeed that negatively contributes to identity security in cyberspace, say, destroys the identity security that has hitherto been provided by a password-only authentication — that’s ‘probabilistic biometrics deployed with a deterministic default password’.
