Finger print recognition software and the chance of a false hit

I find this blog entry a great explanation of how and why the apple finger print recognition is good study in technology.

The details in this white paper on iOS security are incredible. http://images.apple.com/iphone/business/docs/iOS_Security_Feb14.pdf

One in 50,ooo chance of another finger matching on the print technology. More that adequate and better than a four digit pin (10,000 chances). The finger print identification is summarized in the following document.

When I find a reference that explains the finger print roll reader used on HP machines and soon on the Samsung Galaxy I’ll put the reference here.
