People use more passwords today than ever before. But with the advent of Apple’s latest iPhone releases and its TouchID and FaceID technologies, we’ll begin to see a wider acceptance of some biometrics methods like fingerprint and facial scanning. This session will assess the security of these methods compared to the tried and true password.

Learning Objectives:
1: Understand the password’s history and an overview of biometrics.
2: Understand the security pros and cons of passwords versus biometrics.
3: Obtain tips for creating a password/biometrics authentication stack.
