Abstract

Ever-increasing rates of phone theft and identity fraud have pushed second-factor authentication from a desired feature to a necessity. Touch ID allows developers to use the iPhone’s built-in fingerprint sensor without any of the heavy lifting of pattern recognition or low-level encryption. In this chapter, readers will learn about the framework and how to add fingerprint identification to their apps.
