Okay, tough one. How exactly would we go about integrating Biometric scanners (e.g. fingerprint scanners) with our software?
The way I see it, the scanner scans a finger print, and then saves that data in a database, but what data is this? What file type? This is probably the main concern. Because once you have that information, you can just compare scans against the users previous scan in the database... A boolean might get returned and you can then see if the scan matches etc.
Where does one start? Any reading material anyone can suggest perhaps? I specifically want to integrate this functionality with the Java language.
Thanks in advance!
