Wednesday, February 25, 2004Bill Gates predicted the demise of the traditional password because it cannot "meet the challenge" of keeping critical information secure. Microsoft also demonstrated "tamper resistant" biometric ID-card software, developed by its own research arm, that can be used by both small and large companies to create ID cards using a digital camera, an inkjet printer and a business-card scanner. To create an ID card, the software requires a photograph and some basic information about a person, such as name and date of birth. This information is processed by the software to create a digital signature in the form of a bar code, which is also printed onto the ID card. If any of the information on the ID card is altered, it will not correlate to the signature and the card is rejected, according to Microsoft.
