Biometrics - Another LAYER or Another ENTRANCE?


Biometrics - Another LAYER or Another ENTRANCE?


The deterministic authentication factors such as 'Yes or No' on the possession of correct tokens can be deployed as ‘ANOTHER LAYER’ for more secure digital identity, and so can ’Yes or No’ on the feed of correct passwords.

But we have not heard of the cases that the probabilistic factors such as fingerprints, selfies, irises and veins are deployed as ‘another layer' in cyberspace. We only hear of the cases that biometrics sensing is deployed as ‘ANOTHER ENTRANCE', which only brings down the reliability of the identity authentication.

Excerpt 

It was in 2001 on the website of a globally reputed electronics manufacturer that I first noticed this awkward phenomenon. They alleged that their face biometrics was going to displace the password. It immediately occurred to me what we could do when the system failed to recognize us. I quickly started to search for an answer on their website and found a brief statement in a Q&A corner "Don't worry if you are not recognized. You can get logged in by feeding the password that you had registered earlier".

The second encounter came a few months later at a security conference where another global brand hung a large poster reading "Farewell to Password by Fingerprints". I asked an attendant "What can we do when rejected by the fingerprints sensor?", to which he replied "Don't worry. You can rescue yourself by feeding the password that had been registered earlier". I raised the next question "Then, how would it be possible for you to allege "Farewell to Password by Fingerprints?” The attendant turned silent and never opened his mouth again. I gave up and left there.

 It has been as such since 2001 and still is.
