Biometrics currently provides the strongest methods of security, with the main drawback being the cost of the equipment needed to authenticate users. Developed by researchers from Rutgers University, a new system called VibWrite could allow any hard surface to provide smart security access. An inexpensive vibration motor and sensor can be installed almost anywhere, and combined with a user’s unique finger bone vibrations, make secure access quick and easy to maintain. Stronger than passwords because it authorizes the individual, not just a code, VibWrite has been 95 percent accurate in trials with only a three percent false positive rate of…
