Platform support for fingerprints
SecuGen Corp.'s Software Developer Kit, used to build biometric software applications that incorporate its fingerprint recognition technology, will support more platforms with its new release.
The SDK release 8 supports several platforms, including Windows CE, Linux (USB) and Pocket PC 2003, said officials from the Santa Clara, Calif., company.
SecuGen's minutiae-based fingerprint recognition technology allows a person's fingerprints to work like digital codes that are more secure than passwords. The new SDK for Linux allows fingerprint matching functions to be performed on Linux servers.
