Before using biometrics, you could consider a dongle aproach, if the
dongle's is compromised, you buy a new one. If the database containing the
biometric "keys" is compromised, all people in that system are forever
compromised. I for one would refuse as a user to have biometrics in place I
would demand a different solution, perhaps even changing companies.
Those interested should check out the research from china posted on this
list a few months ago about compromising biometrics and how relatively cheap
Black Hat's do exist, one is probably working for you.
