Hi  Jörg,

IMO, biometric was a gimmick in the first place and a bad idea when
carefully considered. All authenticators can be compromised. Hence, all
authenticators must be replaceable following a compromise. If one of your
DCs' palm vein databases is lost, what's your plan for replacing that hand?
