Passwords and Fingerprints and Faces—Oh My! Comparing Old and New Authentication

People use more passwords today than ever before. But with the advent of Apple’s latest iPhone releases and its TouchID and FaceID technologies, we’ll begin to see a wider acceptance of some biometrics methods like fingerprint and facial scanning. This session will assess the security of these methods compared to the tried and true password.

Learning Objectives:
1: Understand the password’s history and an overview of biometrics.
2: Understand the security pros and cons of passwords versus biometrics.
3: Obtain tips for creating a password/biometrics authentication stack.
