Secugen releases fingerprint authentication SDK for Android

May 6, 2013 - 

SecuGen has just announced the release of its FDx SDK Pro for Android.

According to the company, this new SDK will allow developers to add fingerprint authentication to their Android-based software on ARM tablets and smart phones using SecuGen’s Hamster IV and Hamster Plus fingerprint readers. This SDK also incorporates SecuGen’s MINEX tested, FIPS 201/PIV complicate template extraction and matching algorithms.

“We are very excited to be able to offer Android compatibility for our fingerprint readers,” Dan Riley, VP of engineering at SecuGen said. “Our partners have been asking for this and our role, as always, is to provide them with the tools that they need. The FDx SDK Pro for Android is one of several exciting new products that we will be bringing to market in 2013.”

Reported previously in BiometricUpdate.com last year, SecuGen’s Hamster IV fingerprint reader was certified by the Standardization Testing and Quality Certification (STQC) Directorate for use in the UIDAI’s Aadhaar program.

“We are very pleased to offer our partners a new SDK that supports Android,” Won Lee, SecuGen’s CEO said. “We work tirelessly to provide the tools that our partners need to succeed. Today mobile computing has become a ubiquitous platform for a broad range of applications. We are proud to be able to deliver to our partners the ability to leverage that platform.”

Also last year, SecuGen teamed up with Realtime North America to provide a biometric identity management and fraud prevention system for SAP.

More information, including SecuGen’s recently-released SDK is available on the company’s website.
