Finger print scanners - Page 3

post #21 of 51
I have always found them to be a bit of a joke. Its just basically for windows authentication right?

So easily worked around with locksmith etc.

I just tend to truecrypt the system drive and commit the password to memory for machines i want to be secure.

Yehhh i know they are a bit of a unnecassery add-on that you dont really need but like i said on page 1 i have about 10 system passwords plus about 20-25 account passwords for various things it just gets a bit much, and even though it is a bit gimickey i will know security wise i will be safer =]

Yep, I understand completely. Personally I would start messing with them, encrypt the one file, then leave one that looks like what they are looking for but have some nasty stuff they cant unsee in there, be like stepping on a bear trap, every time they decide to go looking they look down at the scar on their leg and decide its not worth it

Why bother using inherently flawed biometrics when a password is stronger and less error prone?
