Security wasn’t meant to be easy

A Biometric device is a security identification and authentication device. Such devices use automated methods of verifying or recognising the identity of a living person based characteristics that include fingerprints, facial images, Iris prints and voice recognition.

We Tried Really Hard To Beat Face ID—and Failed
How hard could it be, after all, to reproduce a person’s face—which sits out in public for everyone to see—and use it to bypass the device’s nearly unbreakable encryption without leaving a trace?

I’m guessing that some of you, not many I hope, are thinking this is great. This is “easy security”. And that’s the problem! Security is not easy. It’s a hassle. It’s a pain in the arse. But that’s the price you pay.

The lesson here is: The TLA’s can’t crack the encryption on many mobiles, or, as far as I know, computers [including USB sticks] that use VeraCrypt. Your shit is locked up tight. Now, if you’re a wanker and start using this biometrical crap because it’s easy then your pretty fucked. Why – because all they have to do is hold the phone up to your face and your device unlocks itself. How hard is that going to be.

Security wasn’t meant to be easy.
Take the time. Take the trouble.
You read stories everyday about those that didn’t.
