Fingerprint readers are used to securely verify identity

HID covers a wide range of products from the simplest for authentication on PC, network to the most complex of the LUMIDIGM series used by the FBI


The fingerprint scanner scans your fingerprint.

It can be used for many applications, including access control, license verification, criminal background checks, computer logon, etc.


Verification of the “liveliness” of a person, in practice verifying that the fingerprint is not a fake, which is performed via a computer system.

This control is usually used to counter fraud and identity theft.


The main categories of fingerprint matching techniques are minutiae-based matching and pattern matching.

Pattern matching simply compares stored images to see how similar they are.

Pattern matching is usually used in fingerprint systems to detect any duplicates.
