Fingerprint identification to log on to a laptop!

For a long-term client of mine, I have been issued a laptop because of the company’s stringent security efforts. To log onto the laptop I must not only enter my username and password but also pass a fingerprint test.

It works wonderfully and amazes me. I swipe my index finger down a small reader that scans my fingerprint and approves me. Someday, retinal images! Other methods of protecting information and objects in legal departments have shown up on this blog (See my post of Feb. 7, 2009: laptop security; March 25, 2009: corporate-wide security measures for hardware and software; June 6, 2006: biometric fingerprint identification; Sept. 4, 2006: security methods; and May 24, 2007 #1: keystroke timing and click rates.).
