finger printing
Hi: all:

I_Was thinking about the finger printing technology. I was thinking
that some entrepreneur should be able to form a fake finger that would
allow an imposter to hack into someone's computer. Here is how it
would work: Y0U lift someone's fingerprint from something that the
person has touched. The company then forms a Rubber finger based on
the lifted print. Now w/ this fake finger, you should be able to log
into that person's computer

what do you think of this idea? Do you think that there would be a
Niche market for this kind of service?

A converse way of asking my question is: Don't you think that finger
scanners on computers would be vulnerable to this type of hacking?

Re: finger printing
Yes. It has already been done. With a gummy bear. And that is completely
true.
