Full Title or Meme

Which is the best Authentication Factor to use? "something you have" or "something you are"?

Context

Any Authentication Factor leads to the two primary problems.

  • Security, primarily the security of Access to some protected resource
  • Privacy, primarily the protection of a user's private data.

Problems

  • All Authentication factors release personally identifiable information (PII) in order to complete their work. The stronger the Authentication, the more information is released.
  • Biometrics, or "something your are" seems to be the best way to show Proof of Presence and is promoted by Brent Arsenault CISO at Microsoft. (2021-06-18)
  • A Wired article "Facial Verification Won't Fight Fraud"[1] encourages states in the US to switch to state issued IDs or "something you have".
