When Apple announced a fingerprint scanner as a security feature on its new I-Phone, people had a lot of questions. Some wondered if it's safe from hackers. Others wondered if your fingerprints would be stored in a government database. Margaret Conley goes digging for answers. "The touch ID sensor quickly reads your fingerprint and automatically unlocks your phone," says Dan Riccio, Apple Sr. Vice President of Hardware Engineering. "You can even use it to authorize purchases through our stores." But is fingerprinting safe from hackers and the growing risk of identity theft? Hollywood movies like "Natuional Treasure" make lifting prints look easy. Security researcher Marc Rogers warns that it depends on how the software giant implements the technology. Apple has clearly thought about this because the data is not going to be stored in the cloud, so there's not going to be a giant database of lots of people's sensitive information that would be a prized target of hackers or enemy state hackers. He says fingerprinting is convenient for users and will be a boost to the mobile industry. "It could open a really huge universe of opportuniites," says Rogers. New biotech mapping opportunities are already in the making. Vascular technology uses infrared light to reflect patterns of blood vessels. And, iris recognition, developed by companies like MorphoTrust. "So the goggles will go ahead and automatically look at the irises," says Rogers. Eye-mapping is said to be faster and more accurate. "You have fingers that are one in 64-billion and irises accuracy is you have one in 1-trillion," says Roland Fournier, Vice President of Business Operations for MorphoTrust. The iris technology is expensive, but it's becoming more popular for use by law enforcement.
