Title: Palm Scan - Intel wants to do away with passwords

Just pass your hand over the reader, and your logged in. That's about as biometric as it gets outside of taking a blood sample!

With the wave of a hand, Intel wants to do away with passwords

SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Passwords for online banking, social networks and email could be replaced with the wave of a hand if prototype technology developed by Intel makes it to tablets and laptops.

Aiming to do away with the need to remember passwords for growing numbers of online services, Intel researchers have put together a tablet with new software and a biometric sensor that recognizes the unique patterns of veins on a person's palm.

"The problem with passwords -- we use too many of them, their rules are complex, and they differ for different websites," Sridhar Iyengar, director of security research at Intel Labs, said at the annual Intel Developer Forum in San Francisco on Thursday. "There is a way out of it, and biometrics is an option."

Iyengar demonstrated the technology, quickly waving his hand in front of a tablet but not touching it. Once the tablet recognizes a user, it can securely communicate that person's identity to banks, social networks and other services where the person has accounts, he said.

Making laptops, tablets and smartphones responsible for identifying users would take that requirement away from individual websites and do away with the need to individually enter passwords into each of them, Iyengar said.

"We plan to work with service providers to take full advantage of this," he said (cont.)

If the beast system isn't fully setup yet, it's getting VERY close now.

The only thing pretty much left is our Lord in heaven yelling "ACTION!".

2Th 2:7  For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.
2Th 2:8  And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming:

this is in the hand or out of the hand biometrics? either way i dont like it, there is not much purpose in it, i guess Intel has to come out with something innovative they dont understand in the light of scripture.

It doesn't get any more "in the hand" biometrics. This technology reads the blood vessels in the hand, which each hand is unique, thus a unique identitfier. And no implanted chip required either. No doubt that chip will be on your id card somewhere though.
