Investigating Touch ID and the Secure Enclave

More from Rich Mogull on Touch ID and the A7’s “Secure Enclave”:

I suspect Apple will eventually release more details in response to public pressure — they still tend to underestimate the level of security information the world needs before placing trust in Apple (or anyone else). But if my assumptions are even close to accurate, Touch ID looks like a good part of a strong system that avoids a bunch of potential pitfalls and will be hard to crack.
