Re: Google Declares War on the Password

said by antdude:

"... Want an easier way to log into your Gmail account? How about a quick tap on your computer with the ring on your finger?

This may be closer than you think. Google’s security team outlines this sort of ring-finger authentication ..."

How lazy are people these days?

And what makes Google think I wear rings? or would wear their ring instead of mine? Rings can be a hazard in some occupations ...

Google's security team needs to get out in the real world more.

You didn't read the article, did you? The actual article is about using hardware tokens for authentication, and just used 'a figure ring' as an example of how one might conveniently carry such a thing - more conveniently than, I suppose, today's key-ring-sized RSA tokens.

I read the article, all right. But since you don't appreciate (lame but pointed) humor, I'm not about to start carrying around hardware tokens for specific sites "for security" or anything else. It's clutter, it's junk, and it's not automatically secure. That's just the sales pitch.

Next thing you know you will be wearing 50 rings.

And not always on our fingers.

That would make "ringing in" at public terminals rather delicate.
