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.

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.
