At a certain point it might however be easier to simply bypass the scanning mechanism itself. Nonetheless I agree that biometric isn't something one should rely on (at least not exclusively)

"something you are" is however more complex to reproduce than a mere password / PIN, and depending on its nature potentially volatile in existence. And there is of course also the "something you have", a difficult-to-clone piece of hardware

comment How to set up OpenSSH to use x509 PKI for authentication?
Thanks, I never read about this despite it being available since apparently 5.4 from 2011... github.com/cloudtools/ssh-ca might be of interest then. I'll try and check this sometime, in which case you'd deserve the checkmark
