July 16 - Alipay executive says biometrics will replace passwords within three years

Article: Technology For A Global Monetary System

At a presentation at the Digital Commerce Summit in Shanghai, Alipay VP Jason Lu predicted that biometric verification for mobile payments will eventually replace traditional passwords.
 
Lu spent the large part of his presentation talking about the possibilities for biometric authentication via mobile devices, particularly in the cases of facial and fingerprint recognition technologies. He compared the two biometric methods, stating that unlike fingerprints, a user’s face was not as secretive. He asked the audience, hypothetically, “Nobody puts their fingerprints on social media, right?”
 
Lu also pointed out that in some countries only national governments are given the authority to collect fingerprints, which prevents the private sector from using the same biometric method. Additionally, Lu explained that in China, the government integrates encrypted fingerprint data into second-generation ID cards.
 
On the other hand, Lu noted that two key disadvantages of using facial recognition is that a user’s face changes with age, and that hackers could potentially use a user’s photo to spoof their identity. He did make it clear that one way to resolve the spoofing issue is to design a system that requires the user to move, ensuring that the face belongs is part of a living human being, and not an simply a photo.
 
“By combining big data and internet, we can attract a lot of ordinary people who do not have a whole lot of money,” he said.
