Web-based Biometrics is a simple, state of the art solution that employees the web-based technology to identity, verify and authenticate users.
The identification, verification or authentication can be done by using fingerprint, face or a combination of both. Fingerprint recognition requires a scanner to be installed on the client machine. The face recognition software can work with a webcam, a regular camera or an IP based camera
The user interface is a web-browser that everyone is familiar with and comes installed with 99% of the OS. As soon a fingerprint reader and a camera is installed on the client machine, it is ready to start capturing the biometric information of the users and sending it to the server for matching. This makes it virtually maintenance-free client-side application and an ideal application for authenticating users over the internet.
