The police have good idea for unlock iPhone fingerprint , That is 3D print finger

Recently, the Michigan State University Computer Science and Engineering Professor Anil Jain  is using the 3D printer to help police got a deceased man's fingers, hoping to use his finger to unlock a cell phone fingerprint lock, to help police find more clues.

Since the case was still under investigation, the case is not yet known in detail. But Jain said that this deceased man was the victim of a murder, and not an attacker. But before the deceased man had had a criminal record, he was arrested by the police before, so it has been archived before their fingerprints.

Jayne has printed the man's 10 fingers, but this has yet to unlock the victim's cell phone. To this end, Jayne continued optimization, coated metal particles on these plastic finger to the fingerprint scanner can be easily identified. Jain said that the ultimate 3D printing finger will be completed in the next few weeks.

If this works, then Description: Fingerprint is not as secure as we thought before. 2014 10 years, Virginia, a court ruled that police suspect the right to require the use of fingerprints to unlock the phone. In contrast, when PIN code has become more secure. Because "the United States Constitution," The Fifth Amendment provides that the Government shall not be mandatory for agencies suspect confessed contents of memory in the brain, such as a password.

It should be noted that a fingerprint-enabled mobile phone, within 48 hours, if the user does not turn over, then turned on again, the phone usually asks for a PIN code. This means that, even if the 3D printing Jayne finger finally solved the fingerprint, you may also need to enter a PIN code to enter the mobile phone.

The event may be the future of law enforcement in order to more easily access the phone suspects open a precedent. If in the future there are suspects were arrested, their mobile phones were confiscated, the police may only get the suspect's fingerprint scanning, you can "mysteriously" opened suspects phone.

In addition, the event also shows the ability to fingerprint and PIN in the protection of personal privacy is limited. In the end, we really need are: law enforcement and government agencies in the processing of personal data, should be open and transparent.
