VeriFinger SDK

Fingerprint identification for stand-alone or Web solutions

VeriFinger is a fingerprint identification technology designed for biometric systems developers and integrators. The technology assures system performance with fast, reliable fingerprint matching in 1-to-1 and 1-to-many modes.

Available as a software development kit that allows development of stand-alone and Web-based solutions on Microsoft Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, iOS and Android platforms.

SDK Contents

VeriFinger SDK is based on VeriFinger fingerprint recognition technology and is intended for biometric systems developers and integrators. The SDK allows rapid development of biometric applications using functionality from the VeriFinger algorithm for Microsoft Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, iOS and Android. VeriFinger can be easily integrated into the customer's security system. The integrator has complete control over SDK data input and output.

VeriFinger SDK includes the Device Manager library for working with the supported fingerprint readers. Integrators can also write plug-ins to support their fingerprint readers or other devices using the plug-in framework provided with the Device Manager.

The following VeriFinger 8.0 SDKs are available:

  • VeriFinger 8.0 Standard SDK is designed for PC-based, embedded and mobile biometric application development. It includes Fingerprint Matcher and Extractor component licenses, programming samples and tutorials, fingerprint scanner support modules and software documentation. The SDK allows the development of biometric applications for Microsoft Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, iOS and Android operating systems.
  • VeriFinger 8.0 Extended SDK is designed for biometric Web-based and network application development. It contains all features and components of the Standard SDK. Additionally, the SDK includes Fingerprint Client component licenses for PCs and mobile devices, sample client applications, tutorials and a ready-to-use matching server component.

The table below compares VeriFinger 8.0 Standard SDK and VeriFinger 8.0 Extended SDK. See the licensing model for more information on specific license types.
