Nobody Is Perfect: Chaos Computer Club breaks Apple TouchID | flamebelly | Scoop.it

 

The biometrics hacking team of the Chaos Computer Club (CCC) has successfully bypassed the biometric security of Apple's TouchID using easy everyday means. A fingerprint of the phone user, photographed from a glass surface, was enough to create a fake finger that could unlock an iPhone 5s secured with TouchID.

 

This demonstrates – again – that fingerprint biometrics is unsuitable as access control method and should be avoided.
