My voice is my passport, verify me - Future of Authentication

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.
