...err, if a trojan has taken control of your PC, what's to stop it installing drivers for your fingerprint scanner, and stealing the fingerprint data?
Of course that's possible, but I was speaking of keyloggers, since it was specifically mentioned in this thread.
Put another way, how do you propose to ensure a secure path for the fingerprint data to make its way from your end of your finger to your bank's servers?
I can't. It's just another way of making it a little harder for the hackers. As I was saying, we will always be one step behind. It's much more reactive, than proactive to deal with these security issues. I don't have all the answers, and I'm pretty sure there will never be a magic bullet to put a stop to hackers and spoofers, but we can do our best to put as many obstacles in their way as possible. The one's I outlined work quite well, but again, they're only obstacles, not death blows.
