Apple vs FBI over Backdoor
It appears that something significant is overlooked in the heated debates about the backdoor.
The recent models of iPhone and many other smart devices already have an effective backdoor, namely, a fingerprint scanner or a set of camera and software for capturing faces, irises and other body features which are easily collected from the unyielding, sleeping, unconscious and dead people. .
Leading media like you could advocate some or all of the following recommendations towards the readers.
The vendors of those smart devices who are conscious of privacy and security of consumers could tell the consumers not to turn on the biometric functions.
The authorities who want these biometric backdoors to be kept open could tell consumers to keep them turned on all the times.
Consumers who are concerned about their privacy and security could refrain from activating those backdoors.
The mechanism of how the biometric sensors make the backdoor was explained in my earlier suggestion for investigative report “Jeopardy of below-one factor authentication” and the slide “Blind Spot in Our Mind& Eye-Opening Experience” shown at
It also highlights the silliness of authentication by selfies that MasterCard and others seem to be trying to promote as a tool for higher security. As repeatedly mentioned, the fact is that the authentication by biometrics comes with poorer security than PIN/password-only authentication in most cases.
That the fallacy is supported and spread by so many of the reputed people does not mean that it is not the fallacy. We may well be witnessing one of the historically rare cases of global preconception or mind control.
Lest we should see criminals delighted, I expect that you will do the needful as one of the globally influential media.
