Today I take up this report “Europe makes the case to ban biometric surveillance” https://www.wired.co.uk/article/europe-ai-biometrics

A friend has directed me to this very intriguing news, which reads “the biometrics business is on a collision course with Europe’s leading data protection experts. Both the European Data Protection Supervisor and the European Data Protection Board have called for a total ban on using AI to automatically recognise people.”

I did not spend much time on this aspect of biometrics, not because it is outside my scope, but because many people are already awake to this problem and working on it actively. Say, I wish to focus more on the issue that few people are not awake to.

The issue is that, when deployed with a default password, biometrics only increases the attack surface and thus further weakens the defense that the weak password has somehow provided.

Discussed in this post -https://www.linkedin.com/posts/hitoshikokumai_identity-authentication-password-activity-6825637129641701376-XgjN"> "Biometrics is to Password what Back door is to Front door"

I am speaking out loudly and persistently on this problem of biometrics because few people are speaking about it; once we are awake to this truth, we have a moral duty to speak up.

I don't disagree with you, but if I may, I'd like to play the devil's advocate here, so as to aid our mutual understanding of this matter. So, if biometrics is widely accepted and is considered to be more secure than passwords (particularly the embarrassingly weak passwords most people use), then could it be that this kind of security method holds merit nevertheless? Could it be that this use of both at the same time, although unbelievable stupid from a CS standpoint, is just a means to transition people to use biometrics more? Finally, could it be that the misuse (or abuse) of A.I. is the weakest link in all this framework that many people use for the authentication process? Cheers
