Licensing VeriFinger

The following licensing model is intended for end-user product developers. Integrators who want to develop and sell a VeriFinger-based development tool (with API, programming possibilities, programming samples, etc.), must obtain permission from Neurotechnology and sign a special VAR agreement.

Product Development

An integrator should obtain either a VeriFinger 7.1 Standard SDK (EUR 339) or VeriFinger 7.1 Extended SDK (EUR 859) to develop a product based on VeriFinger technology. The SDK needs to be purchased just once and may be used by all the developers within the integrator's company.

VeriFinger SDKs include a number of components; each particular component has specific functionality. A license for an individual VeriFinger component is required for each computer or device that run the component.

(1) Fingerprint Client component includes Fingerprint Extractor, Fingerprint Segmenter, Fingerprint BSS and Fingerprint WSQ components, which can be also obtained separately. The Fingerprint Client concurrent license may be also used for running the Embedded Fingerprint Client on multiple Android devices.

Components are copy-protected – a license is required for a component to run. License activation options are listed below on this page.

Additional component licenses may be obtained by VeriFinger 7.1 SDK customers as required by their development process.

Product Deployment

To deploy a product developed with VeriFinger 6.3 / 6.4 / 6.5 / 6.6 / 6.7 / 7.0 / 7.1 SDK, an integrator need obtain only the additional licenses required for the particular VeriFinger 7.1 components that will run on each computer or device belonging to their customers. The available VeriFinger components and license types for product deployment are the same as for product development.

Each VeriFinger component running on a computer belonging to the integrator's customer requires a license. License activation options are listed below on this page.

Prices for VeriFinger 7.1 SDK and additional VeriFinger component licenses can be found here.

Please refer to the License Agreement for all licensing terms and conditions.

Single computer licenses

A single computer license allows the installation and running of a VeriFinger component installation on one computer or device. Neurotechnology provides a way to renew the license if the computer undergoes changes due to technical maintenance.

Each single computer license requires activation for a VeriFinger component to run. The available activation options are listed below on this page.

Additional single computer licenses for VeriFinger components may be obtained at any time by VeriFinger SDK customers.

Concurrent network licenses

Concurrent licenses are available for Fingerprint Client component, allowing the installation of this specific component on an unlimited number of computers. An application obtains a specific license to perform template creation (extraction). The Fingerprint Client component requires at least 0.6 seconds for fingerprint enrolling. After this interval the license is released, making it available for another user. One Fingerprint Client concurrent license can be shared among hundreds of users, making this license especially useful for web-based software.

The number of simultaneously running Fingerprint Client component instances is limited by the number of concurrent licenses. Available license management options are listed below on this page.

The concurrent license for Fingerprint Client also allows to run the Embedded Fingerprint Client on multiple Android devices.

Additional concurrent network licenses may be obtained at any time by VeriFinger SDK customers.

License activation options

Single computer and concurrent network licenses are supplied in three ways:

  • Serial numbers are used to activate licenses for particular VeriFinger components. The activation is done via the Internet or by email. After activation the network connection is not required for single computer license usage.
    Note: activation by serial number is not suitable for virtual environments.
  • Internet activation. A special license file is stored on a computer or an Android device; the license file allows to run particular VeriFinger components on that computer or device after checking the license over the Internet. Internet connection should be available for a short period of time at least once in 7 days. A single computer license can be transferred to another computer or device by moving the license file there and waiting until the previous activation expires.
  • Licenses may be stored in a volume license manager dongle. License activation using volume license manager may be performed without connection to the Internet and is suitable for virtual environments.

Volume license manager

Volume license manager is used on site by integrators or end users to manage licenses for VeriFinger components. It consists of license management software and a dongle, used to store the purchased licenses. An integrator or an end-user may use the volume license manager in the following ways:

  • Activating single computer licenses – An installation license for a VeriFinger component will be activated for use on a particular computer. The number of available licenses in the license manager will be decreased by the number of activated licenses.
  • Managing single computer or concurrent licenses via a LAN or the Internet – The license manager allows the management of installation licenses for VeriFinger components across multiple computers or Android devices in a LAN or over the Internet. The number of managed licenses is limited by the number of licenses in the license manager. No license activation is required and the license quantity is not decreased. Once issued, the license is assigned to a specific computer or device on the network.
  • Using license manager as a dongle – A volume license manager containing at least one license for a VeriFinger component may be used as a dongle, allowing the VeriFinger component to run on the particular computer where the dongle is attached.

Additional VeriFinger component licenses for the license manager may be purchased at any time. Neurotechnology will generate an update code and send it to you. Simply enter the code into the license manager to add the purchased licenses.

VeriFinger 7.1 enterprise license

The VeriFinger enterprise license allows an unlimited use of VeriFinger components in end-user products for a specific territory, market segment or project. Specific restrictions would be included in the licensing agreement.

The enterprise license price depends on the application size and the number of potential users of the application within the designated territory, market segment or project.

Existing VeriFinger customers may also use the license management options provided for their version of VeriFinger SDK:

AFIS or multi-biometric fingerprint, iris, face and voice identification for large-scale systems.

Face identification for PC, mobile and Web solutions.

Fingerprint identification for PC, mobile and Web solutions.

Iris identification for PC, mobile and Web solutions.

Speaker recognition for PC, mobile and Web applications.
