IPhone 5S: Fingerprint scanner - a good compromise or bad idea?

Apple selbst ist natürlich davon überzeugt, dass es eine gute Idee wäre, besser auf jeden Fall als ein IPhone 5s 3d envelopeskomplett ohne jeden Schutz – wobei das Schutzniveau eines vierstelligen Zahlencodes schon fragwürdig ist – zu benutzen. Und immerhin rund die Hälfte der Iphone 5s Wifi antennaUsers have so far for the most part disregarded the code bar for convenience. For exactly this, Apple has installed the fingerprint sensor and it naturally sounds like a solution that offers more security without compromising comfort. At least in theory. Bruce Schneier also calls this type of authentication a good compromise between security and convenience.
So a great idea?Not really, at least not in the view of Hamburg Data Protection Commissioner Johannes Caspar and attorney Udo Vetter.Compared to the mirror, the privacy advocates from Hamburg spoke clearly against such techniques:
Biometrische Merkmale kann man nicht löschen. Sie begleiten uns das Leben lang. Fingerabdrücke sollte man daher nicht für alltägliche Authentifizierungsverfahren abgeben, insbesondere wenn sie in einer Datei gespeichert werden.
That's a fundamental rejection, which is no other arguments need to be, as the question of where the fingerprints - and the unique IDs generated from them - end up at the end.Apple says that they are saved on the device only and no app has access to it.But even if it were otherwise, and some US intelligence would get this data, then Apple is likely the unlikely blab.
