Today Apple announced that the iPhone 5S will have a fingerprint scanner. Many of us in the security community are highly sceptical of this feature, while others saw this as a smart security move. Then of course there are the journalists who see fingerprints as the ultimate password killer. Clearly there is some disagreement here. I thought I’d lay this out for those of you who need to better understand the implications of using fingerprints vs or in addition to passwords.
