Some Links on Biometrics And Information Security

Security is a bit of a pet peeve of mine. Somehow on a Dutch site on security I found a small article (dutch, of course) that brought back good memories on biometrics of some years ago about a couple guys breaking "unbreakable fingerprint readers" with laughable ease (gummy-fingers!) [warning PDF]. See what the MythBusters' take is on this one (a classic one, you might know it)

For some more insight and clarification on information security, go read what Steve Riley (of Microsoft)has to say on the topic:

It’s Me, and Here’s My Proof: Why Identity and Authentication Must Remain Distinct
O, and go see Steve speak if you've got the chance!

These links are not even scratching at the surface of this massive and important topic, but somehow we tend to forget this too often as developers, or are only giving it an afterthought.
Hopefully this gives you some inspiration for better security in the context of your own projects.
