Frequently Asked Question

What are the features and benefits of a Fingerprint Reader?


The Fingerprint Reader deliver a highly convenient user experience with their quick and simple touch authentication methodology. Rather than remembering passwords to unlock a PC, it will unlock at the touch of a finger.

Biometric identification techniques for user authentication are more secure and easier to use than a typed password. Of the techniques available, fingerprint sensing strikes the sweet spot between security and convenience. Rather than having to remember a “strong” password, and possibly needing a token as well, users can simply swipe a finger to prove their identity.

As with all fingerprint authentication solutions, Match-on-Host fingerprint sensing positively identifies the user by matching the fingerprint read by the sensor with a known, secured “template” (record of the user’s fingerprint). The fingerprint template is created and stored during an “enrollment” process. This template is used during every subsequent access attempt to identify and authenticate the user.
