Researchers have generated artificial fingerprints that function as "master keys" for fingerprint biometric systems.
I mean, this shouldn't happen, right? Biometrics are supposed to be something you are, and unique to you.
OK, we all know that, in implementation, you can have some level of false positive results. But in a system that should have an error rate of only one in a thousand, they were able to fake one in five. (That's 200 in a thousand.)
As usual in these cases, the researchers were taking advantage of implementation errors, and those probably can be tightened up, but lots of fingerprint scanners won't be ...
