Ever wondered what could possibly Internet Explorer 11 bring to the table? If the recent rumor is true, it will change the security game as we know.
According to Insideris, with the help of Kinect (probably Kinect 2 by the time it’s released) or a fingerprint reader, Microsoft will assign a unique ID for your finger (or face), which will be used as follows:
- If user is joining a new web site and it requires to choose a password, user touches a fingerprint reader (or smiles), unique password is generated and uploaded to Microsoft’s cloud (from what It seems, user does not actually see his password) and it’s pretty much done.
- When user wants to login, Internet Explorer 11 will detect that the password has already been generated for the following site, he touches a fingerprint reader and password is entered automatically.
Basically, it pretty much eliminates insecure passwords as all of them are generated automatically, they are stored in the cloud, user no longer has to remember complex combinations and Trojans can no longer steal login data, as user does not have to type it.
