Sicher?, von wegen. Apple TouchID

The biometrics hacking team of the Chaos Computer Club (CCC) has successfully bypassed the biometric security of Apple’s TouchID using easy everyday means. A fingerprint of the phone user, photographed from a glass surface, was enough to create a fake finger that could unlock an iPhone 5s secured with TouchID. This demonstrates – again – that fingerprint biometrics is unsuitable as access control method and should be avoided.

Das ist kein alleiniges Problem von Apple. Es ist generell ein Problem von Fingerabdruckscanner und der Methode damit etwas “sicher” zu machen.
