FingerID: A New Security Model Based on Fingerprint Recognition for Distributed Systems
The current practice of password based security for distributed systems in general and the Internet in particular is inadequate.

Similar services already exist, and they are good in some situations, but prove to be inadequate under other circumstances. Overall, three main requirements of the everyday Internet user remain unaddressed – freedom from memorizing many passwords and pass phrases; convenience and ease of use; and security.

Abstract

The current practice of password based security for distributed systems in general and the Internet in particular is inadequate. Besides, remembering a plethora of long passwords and pass phrases sometimes as many as 15 or 20 is cumbersome .This raises the need to introduce a better and more reliable authentication mechanism which is not dependent on a series of characters, but rather on a technology that is unique and only possessed by the individual. Similar services already exist, and they are good in some situations, but prove to be inadequate under other circumstances. Overall, three main requirements of the everyday Internet user remain unaddressed – freedom from memorizing many passwords and pass phrases; convenience and ease of use; and security. The present paper attempts to offer an answer to all these problems by just one solution, named FingerID. The contribution of this study is of considerable significance, as it would revolutionize the way Internet security is managed.
