Scanners normally work in conjunction with a swipe card too so they
would need to steal that =o)...   

Smart scanners are normally located in a man trap with a guard and
require a pass-code.

Hello list!

   I will work in a project where phisical security will be based on
   biometrics, in fact only will be based on fingerprints biometric.

   How secure are fingerprints?, what biometric are more secure? (voice,
   eye, ??? what else).

   I'm not a security expert :-)

   Thanks a lot,

   [my english is bad... please sorry :-)]
