What are your thoughts of using biometric scanners as a means of authentication on websites or decryption? How do you think this will affect the concept of passwords? Ever since Apple aquired a fingerprint-scanning company, there have been rumors of the iPhone 5S possessing a fingerprint sensor in the home button. I think this would be awesome, and much more convienent/safe than the current means.
Another thought: If a fingerprint scanner was used, what would this mean for the brute-forcing as a means of hacking? How could that be done, and what else could be done?
