Pass On Passwords (Harvard Crimson)
Think for a moment about your bank account password. There's a good chance it's a string of letters and numbers you know by heart, could type in your sleep, and have been using for years. You probably use it for at least one other website, too—a security study last year found that 73 percent of people use their bank password elsewhere.
Template only biometric applications are far superior to passwords and they sidestep the concerns raised about biometrics in this article. Middleware providers like SecurLinx can ensure against ID management risks even in the event that the templates are stolen, even if the customer doesn't even know they have been stolen.
Passwords are lame.
I believe we are nearing a tipping point where ordinary individuals begin more vocally to demand biometric ID management solutions. The status quo doesn't work and we're not going to be taking a time machine back to the single-password bliss of 1995.
