    Just combine biometrics with passwords.
    One part can be kept private and can be revoked (password).
    Other part can uniquely (close enough in most situations) identify individual (biometrics).

    Maybe not good enough for GCHQ or Defense Ministry or Samsung Headquarters. But probably good enough for somethings like medical office or for citizen voting in elections.
