php[tek] 2018 - Biometrics, fantastic failure point of the future

Download to read offline

This presentation attempts to prepare developers for the coming storm of biometric authentication. It is coming; for many, it is already here. Unfortunately, few of us have been prepared to select tools for utilizing biometric authentication properly. In this presentation, Adam Englander will express the special dangers of biometrics with regards to lifespan and storage. Due to the user's inability to change a biomteric, it is much more valuable to bad actors as the lifespan will undoubtedly exceed the lifespan of the cryptography. Any biometric database stolen today will likely be able to be cracked by the average computer in 20 years. This creates a unique problem many of us have not had to tackle before. We need a different mindset when thinking about biometrics. This presentation will try and give that much-needed perspective.
