SecuGen SDK – For Linux (1:1 Matching, with Java support)

  1. Provides low-level APIs for Fingerprint Capture, Minutiae Extraction, and 1:1 Matching using simple, small libraries to give the most flexibility for developers of all kinds of applications
  2. Features “next-generation” imaging, extraction, and matching algorithm technologies, including Highly-Adaptive Filtering and Advanced Image Enhancement and Restoration
  3. Processes and stores fingerprint minutiae into 3 types of template formats (ANSI INCITS 378, ISO/IEC 19794-2, SecuGen proprietary 400-byte encrypted)
  4. Includes all header and library files and full documentation for development and distribution
  5. Complies with Biometric Standards (ANSI INCITS 378, ISO/IEC 19794-2)
  6. Includes NIST Certified algorithms for FIPS 201 / PIV Compliance (MINEX tested Template Generator v3.5, Template Matcher v3.5)

Sample Programs and Source Code

  1. Fingerprint Image Capture
  2. Fingerprint Matching Demo
  3. Sample Source Code (in C/C++, Java)


Additional Features

  1. Auto-On™ – automatic finger detection technology
  2. Smart Capture™ – high quality fingerprint scanning of difficult fingers (dry, wet, scarred) in challenging environments and conditions such as under direct sunlight
  3. Device Recognition™ – identifies USB readers by their internal serial numbers
  4. Matching Score – helps ensure that good quality templates are registered by setting a specified quality level before accepting; helps lower false rejection rates
  5. 360 Degree Fingerprint Rotation – recognizes fingerprints independently of how much they are rotated
