Logical Security

All the applications that control the access to logical resources can be considered logical security applications: access to operating systems, access to networks or domains, authentication to programs and software. Usually the identification of a person is performed using a username and password: this authentication method can be replaced by the verification of the fingerprint.

Fingerprint Live Scanners

The HiScan, Fx2100 and Fx3100 scanners can be simply connected to a PC (Windows or Linux) through the USB port. These scanners can be used to perform the authentication process (instead of username and password) and can also be used to acquire high quality fingerprint images in law enforcement applications or border control applications.
