Single authentication protocols. Pipe dream or not too distant future reality?
One of my favourite films is the 1992 crime thriller, Sneakers starring Robert Redford partnered with a brilliant cast of A-list actors. The film is about a group of security consultants from various backgrounds who’ve been tasked to steal a code breaking device - an algorithm that can crack any password. The villain of the film, Cosmo, played by the amazing Ben Kingsley, recognises that due to poor passwords he can change the world and topple economic systems using this algorithm in the device. Funnily enough, Cosmo’s own fortress - a toy design business - is protected with voice biometrics.
