fingerprint reader : Computer Hardware Buyers’ Glossary


fingerprint reader
A device that reads a fingerprint, usually with firmware that extracts a few features. These can be verified against a database of authorised users to allow access to a secure facility. To use them in Java, you would have to write some JNI (Java Native Interface) to interface to the platform-specific device driver.
