Ruminating on Biometric security

Fingerprint scanners are becoming ubiquitous in many smartphones. There are also a few other pure software biometric solutions that are gaining traction in the market. Jotting down a few references.

http://www.eyeverify.com/  - EyeVerify maps the unique veins (blood vessels) and other micro-features in and around your eyes to create a digital key (eye-print) equal to a 50-character complex password. They claim that they are more than 99.99% accurate. It can work on any existing 1+ MP (megapixel) smart device camera !

Nuance Vocal Password: A user's voice is analyzed for hundreds of unique characteristics that are then compared to the voiceprint on file.
