Fingerprint Technology


Fingerprint login is simple, fast, and secure. First you "register" one or more of your fingerprints. The system saves enough unique information about your fingerprint to create a template so that a fingerprint reader can later identify you.


Your actual fingerprint is not stored, and your actual fingerprint cannot be reconstructed from the template that is created and stored.





When you want to log on, you touch the fingerprint reader and your fingerprint is compared to the template that was created during the registration process. If there is enough matching information, you are authenticated and logged on.


If there is not enough matching information, the system will not verify you or log you on.





The fingerprint recognition application software does not store a copy of your fingerprint. Instead, it makes a map of 25 to 40 unique features of your fingerprint and then puts it into a data format called a template.


The template can only be interpreted by the biometric engine. If one were to look at the template of a fingerprint, it would not be recognizable, as the information is a set of numbers and is typically encrypted.
