> Are there security schemes or proposals that assume other people don't know my fingerprints? Have you never seen someone who unlocks his or her laptop with a fingerprint reader (and no password, i.e. one-factor authentication)? I bet that they think this is secure because their fingerprint is just like a password. Otherwise it is pretty worthless against semi-interested attackers. I am starting to wonder how many laptops don't have the owner's fingerprints right there, on their surface...
