 ‘Authenticators’ and ‘Deployment of Authenticators’

‘Authenticators’ and ‘Deployment of Authenticators’

  There are not a few security professionals who wrongly mix up the layer of ‘authenticators’ with that of ‘deployment of authenticators’, talking as though the former and the latter were competing each other, for...

 Probabilistic Is Human Body, Not Pattern-Matching Algorithm

Probabilistic Is Human Body, Not Pattern-Matching Algorithm

The probabilistic nature of biometrics comes from the unpredictably variable body features of living animals rather than imperfect algorithms of pattern matching; perfection of pattern matching algorithm would not affect the probabilistic nature of...

True that. Convenience and (cyber)security are rivaling factors. Cheers

No objection. Biometrics, when deployed unwisely, would make racism worse

I am focusing on the threat of biometrics to the security of digital identity because few other people talk much about this particular issue, whereas many people are already talking about the threat of biometrics to privacy and civil rights.

A black-box technology like this is bound to be much worse than that. For instance, it can be a way to further promote racism, considering that the police database is bound to have way more pictures of black people (thanks to the existing racism in arrests and the race-based social divides). So, some people would be more accurately identified, leading to the solidification of the argument that the system work, while other people would be probably dismissed due to the high chance of a false match. If that's not a cover for racial distrimination I don't know what is. Cheers!
