Comment: Healthy skepticism is good,

Healthy skepticism is good,

Healthy skepticism is good, but independent analysis verifies that the iPhone 5s fingerprint scanner is isolated from the rest of the CPU and encrypted with a local key. This means that even if someone could access that part of the CPU (they can't) the data would be meaningless. That goes for Apple themselves or the NSA as well, the data just isn't stored in a way that can be back-converted reliably.
