But Apple is still without one important piece that would position its iPhone as a strong authentication device for secure access to both consumer and enterprise Web applications. A piece that could give users more control over their credentials, and get retailers and others out of the password business while subtracting personal data out of back-end servers where lately it has been a sitting duck. And it’s a piece the iPhone-rival Samsung Galaxy S5 shipped in April.
