Hacking Fingerprint Readers with Master Prints
There's interesting research on using a set of "master" digital fingerprints to fool biometric readers. The work is theoretical at the moment, but they might be able to open about two-thirds of iPhones with these master prints.
Definitely something to keep watching.
Research paper (behind a paywall).
EDITED TO ADD (6/13): The research paper is online.
