Understanding Biometric Security with Windows® 7
Biometric Security is one of the best way of enhancing security, which involves the use of fingerprint scans, retinal scans, or other physiological features that are specific to the users to determine his or her identity. Windows 7 has built-in support for fingerprint readers.
This tool was also available in Windows earlier editions but they need to install third party software. In case of Windows 7, there is no native support for this and therefore you need not install any software. In the Control Panel, fingerprint readers can be configured by you in the Biometric Devices applet.
Growing number of computers include embedded fingerprint readers which results in the authentication of user. Software needs to be provided by the manufacturer so that biometric devices can be supported. This results in difficulty for the user to manage the use of the devices. A new Control Panel called Biometric Device Control Panel is included which provides a way for deleting stored biometrics information, troubleshooting, and enabling or disabling the types of logins that are allowed using biometrics. Biometrics configuration can also be set using Windows 7Â Group Policy settings. You'll find it easier when access a computer using fingerprint biometric devices with Windows 7.
Windows 7 Biometric Device Control Panel allows the users to launch fingerprint application. It provides the following:
1. Availability of biometric devices can be controlled by the user.
2. For biometric devices, Device Manager tool supports managing drivers.
3. To configure the use of the biometric data to log on to a local computer Credential, provider support is made available.
4. You can easily update with Windows update as Biometric device driver software are available.
Sometimes, while working with Windows 7, the fingerprint reader shows “currently busy” because it is being used for enrollment. If you are currently enrolling fingerprint data with a device, it will show as unavailable. You will be able to use the device once fingerprint enrollment is complete. There might be something wrong with the fingerprint reader. It’s probably a issues with the driver. You can try to fix this by re-installing the driver.
