FS22/FS21M Fin’Lock – Fingerprint Access Control System with Mifare

With high resolution optical system & latest biometric technology, Futronic Fin’Lock FS22/FS21M Fingerprint Access Control System provides enterprises a secured but convenient access and attendance control solution. It supports MiFare card(a contactless smart card technology developed by Philips) so that any combination of fingerprint, MiFare card and PIN can be used for access and attendance control. If necessary, fingerprint can also be stored in MiFare card to eliminate any possible privacy issue.

FS22 is a high performance device. It uses powerful Digital Signal Processor for fingerprint recognition. It can do full-match for 700 fingerprints in one second. Full-match means the device matches the input fingerprint to all fingerprints stored in the database before giving result. That is, the matching does not stop even after getting preset matching score but will continue to match all fingerprints and return the fingerprint that has the highest score. This is a major advantage of Fin’Lock products comparing with most other similar products available in the market which stop the matching when preset score is reached. It is because Full-Match is the most accurate way of fingerprint recognition and can reduce the False Acceptance Ratio (FAR) to almost zero. It is a perfect solution for application that needs to do 1-to-many matching with a large fingerprint database.

FS21M has exactly the same features as FS22 but with a slower matching speed because it uses a different processor.

Futronic FS22/FS21M can operate in both Local and Network mode. With standard Ethernet interface, FS22/FS21Ms can be connected as a cluster via LAN/Internet under the control of a single Fingerprint Authentication Server(FAS) which is Futronic proprietary software running on Windows 2000/XP and Vista.

In network mode, fingerprints can be stored and recognized in the FAS which can handle unlimited number of fingerprints. In local mode, each FS22/FS21M can store up to 3000 fingerprints itself and can be used as a standalone access and attendance control device.

Features
  • FS22/FS21M supports Futronic proprietary Live Finger Detection(LFD). If this function is activated, only live fingers can be used to access and FS22/FS21M will not capture the image from fake fingers. So fake fingers made from silicone and rubber can’t be used to access.
  • With MiFare card reader and writer. That is, all FS22/FS21M can be used to issue MiFare card for users.
  • Support various access control methods to meet different application needs, some examples are:
    • Fingerprint only(1-to-N matching)
    • ID+ Fingerprint(1-to-1 matching)
    • MiFare card+Fingerprint(1-to-1 matching)
    • MiFare card+Fingerprint stored on card(1-to-1 matching)
    • MiFare card+PIN
    • MiFare card only
    • PIN only
  • Each user can register up to 3 fingerprints
  • User/Finger administration such as add, delete, edit, etc, can be done in both FS22/FS21M and FAS/PC.
  • User/Finger database can be synchronized between FS22/FS21M and FAS/PC via LAN/Internet
  • All communication between FS22/FS21M and FAS is encrypted by Blowfish algorithm and the key exchange between them is done by Diffie-Hellman algorithm.
  • Can operate in local mode or network mode
  • Support Wiegand interface with 5 selectable output formats.
  • Support Futronic’s Remote Relay Unit FS30.

FS25 USB2.0 Fingerprint Mifare Card Reader/Writer

FS25 USB2.0 Fingerprint Mifare Card Reader/Writer combines a fingerprint scanner and an ISO14443A compatible Mifare card Reader/Writer into one device.

FS25 is a standalone fingerprint matcher and can do “Match on Device”. Under the control of PC via USB interface, it captures a fingerprint image, extracts the minutiae (fingerprint characteristics) and then stores to its internal memory. The stored fingerprint can be used to match with a freshly captured fingerprint and matching result is sent to PC for authentication. Its internal memory can store up 100 fingerprints.

FS25 can handle ISO14443A compatible Mifare card and has all the necessary card function such as format card, issue card, read card, write card, copy card, erase card, etc. So it can be used as a standalone USB Mifare card Reader/Writer. FS25 supports both 1KB and 4KB Mifare card.

With a combination of fingerprint “Match on Device” and ISO14443A Mifare card Reader/Writer, FS25 is perfect for real two-factors authentication, what you own(finger) is matched with what you carry(Mifare card). It is because fingerprint data can be stored to Mifare card and at the time of authentication:

  1. User shows the Mifare card and FS25 read the fingerprint data stored in card
  2. Then put finger and FS25 scans the fingerprint image
  3. FS25 matches the scanned fingerprint with the fingerprint data read from the Mifare card
  4. The matching result is sent to PC for authentication

Futronic provides full SDK to customers to make such two-factor authentication application.

The use of fingerprint recognition for logical and physical access control has been controversial. It is because the fingerprint data must be stored somewhere in system for authentication. This may infringe the privacy of users in some cases. And FS25 is the answer to this problem as it can identify an individual using fingerprint without storage of fingerprint data in the system.

FS25 can also be used to together with Fingerprint authentication Server (FAS) which is Futronic proprietary software running on Windows 2000/XP/Vista for user and finger database management and access and attendance control. FAS controls Futronic Access and Attendance Control Devices FS20, FS21M and FS22. System administrator can use FS25 to issue Mifare card that can access FS21M and FS22. So FS25, together with FAS and FS22/FS21M, can form a complete web-enable fingerprint access control system that supports Mifare card.

FS30 RRU – Remote Relay Unit

For Futronic Fingerprint Access control system.

FS30 RRU is a very useful accessory for customers who need higher security when using Futronic Fingerprint Access Control System FS2x series(FS20and FS21M/FS22).

The FS30 can be put somewhere inside the facility. When access to this facility is granted to someone by FS2x which is installed outside the facility, instead of FS2x controls the electric door lock to open the door, a signal is sent from FS2x to FS30 which will then open the door. This eliminates the possibility of manipulating the connection between FS2x and electric door lock to make unauthorized access to a secured facility.

All function of FS30 is controlled from FS2x. Once it is connected to FS2x, it can be set up for use in 5 minutes.

Apart from enhanced security, FS30 also expands the function of the overall Access Control system. There are two Alarm/Sensor inputs on it which can be set to Normal Close(NC) and Normal Open(NO) independently for connecting to various sensors around the access point, such as door sensor, intruder sensor, etc. Either sensor is triggered, the siren of FS30 will be activated which can only be de-activated by system administrator through FS2x. There are also Wiegand IN and OUT for interfacing with other access control devices.

Fingerprint Authentication Server(FAS)

FAS is a Futronic proprietary software running on Windows 2000/XP/Vista for user and finger database management and access and attendance control. It is running on PC as a background service with a web-based user interface which can be accessed by using standard Windows Internet Explorer (IE) on any PC connected to LAN or Internet. Any ordinary computer user can start to use FAS with almost no training.

FAS is a control program via LAN or Internet for Futronic Fin’Lock, FS20,FS21M and FS22. With proper network setting, Fin’locks installed at different physical locations can be controlled by one FAS in a central location. User data (including fingerprint) and access log can be transferred between FAS and every individual Fin’lock under the control of the system administrator. FAS can also control the access permission and denial of a particular user on every connected Fin’lock. The communication between FAS and Fin’lock is encrypted. Moreover, it is not necessary for the system administrator and the PC with FAS installed to be at the same place. FAS administration can be done on any PC connected to LAN or Internet by using standard Windows Internet Explorer (IE). So FAS and Fin’lock together provide a complete fingerprint access and attendance control solution that makes remote control over internet a very simple task.

Users/fingers can be registered to FAS by using the Futronic FS80 USB2.0 fingerprint scanner. Then it can receive authentication request from anyFS20,FS21M and FS22 connected through LAN/Internet and then return the authentication result. FAS can issue Mifare card that can access FS21M and FS22 using FS25 USB2.0 Fingerprint Mifare Card Reader/Writer.

Authentication procedure:
  • A freshly captured fingerprint is sent from any Fin’Lock to FAS.
  • Upon receipt, FAS will match it to the database of pre-registered fingerprint and return the result(match or no match) back to the Fin’Lock.
  • The Fin’Lock will take appropriate action(access or no access) according the returned result from FAS.
  • If there is a “match”, FAS will log this event: date, time, matched user ID and Fin’Lock ID(which sent the fingerprint).
Major features
  • It can match fingerprints sent from all connected Fin’Locks with its own user/finger database and return the result to the particular Fin’Lock.
  • Fingerprint recognition accuracy: FAR-10-6, FRR-10-2.
  • More than one Fin’Locks can be connected to FAS through LAN or Internet to form a cluster for large scale access control application.
  • User/finger can be registered to FAS by using standard Futronic FS80 USB2.0 fingerprint scanner. Each user can register up to 3 fingers.
  • It can issue Mifare card for accessing FS21M and FS22 using FS25 USB2.0 Fingerprint Mifare Card Reader/Writer.
  • All user attributes are editable by a web-based user interface through Internet Explorer(IE) from any PC in LAN or Internet.
  • Use MS-SQL 2005 Express for User/Finger and Access Log Database.
  • User/Finger database can be imported and exported.
  • User information(without fingerprint data) can also be imported and exported
  • User/Finger database can be transferred between FAS and all Fin’Locks.
  • Support up to a maximum of 99 user groups for flexible attendance control report and access permission/denial setting.
  • Access Log and attendance report in FAS can be exported to Excel and Plain Text format
  • Support 3 different attendance report(in/out setting) options for each user group:
    • First and Last in 24 hours
    • First in 24 hours
    • In/Out By Sessions, in which session can be defined across mid-night
  • Access permission/denial setting that can be defined:
    • For each Fin’lock and
    • Per user or per user group and,
    • For a period of days or days in every week(for example, no access for all Sat & Sun).
System requirements
  • MS Windows 2000/XP/2003/Vista
  • P4 2.4G processor or higher
  • 512MB RAM minimum
  • 200MB hard disk space minimum
  • USB port and CDROM drive
Single Sign On Ready

Besides handling physical access control as described above, FAS is also ready for logical access control. For any workstation in LAN, with specific logon client software and a Futronic FS80 USB2.0 fingerprint scanner connected, it can scan user’s fingerprint and send it to FAS for authentication. If it is matched, this user will logon to a specific file and application server accordingly. So once a user registers finger(s) in FAS, the finger(s) can be used for both door entrance(physical access) and computer logon(logical access). This is a true SINGLE SIGN ON working environment as illustrated in the following diagram. Please contact Futronic for more information.

Fingerprint Recognition Software Development Kit(SDK) for MS Windows

Introduction

Futronic’s MS Windows Fingerprint Recognition Software Development Kit(SDK) is an excellent tool for users to develop their own MS Windows based fingerprint recognition application software. It works seamlessly with the FS80, FS82, FS88 and FS25. With the SDK, you can make use of Futronic proprietary fingerprint recognition algorithm without knowing the details of a purely mathematical process. So fingerprint recognition can be integrated into any application program to REPLACE the users’ Logon password by a touch of finger in MS Windows platform to make your system more secure and user administration easier.

Who is it for?

Application software developers who want to add secure but convenient fingerprint authentication into any MS Windows based application software for easy user management and more secure logon control. The SDK can be used to make application programs for both standalone PC and many PCs connected in any networking environment.

Major SDK features

The SDK is implemented as Win32 API dynamic-link library (DLL). To make use of it, function call can be made to the DLL from any application program in Windows XP/2003/Vista/2008/7/2012/8 32/64bit environment. It has the following major features:

  • Capturing fingerprint image from FS80, FS82, FS88 and FS25
  • Extracting fingerprint characteristics(minutiae) from real time captured image and creating a template which can be used:
    • For registration, the template will be stored in the database
    • For authentication, the template will be matched to pre-registered template
  • Matching fingerprint templates(one of the matching templates must be generated from real time captured image) can be done in 1-to-1 or 1-to-many manner
  • Recognition accuracy, FAR & FRR, can be adjusted to suit security requirement of different application.
  • Support Live Finger Detection(LFD) when using together with FS80, FS82, FS88 and FS25
  • Support WinCE 5.0 and 6.0 for both ARM9 and x86 hardware platforms

Standard SDK package includes example programs with source code to show how to use the SDK for the following development platforms:

  • VC6 and VC2012
  • VB.Net and C#, including VS2003/2005/2010/2012
  • JAVA
  • VB6
  • Borland Delphi

Please download the VC6 SDK example program from this page to try and contact Futronic for more details

Basics about fingerprint recognition
  • A fingerprint must be registered in a system before it can be used for authentication.
  • During registration, the fingerprint image is captured by using a fingerprint scanner. Then the system will extract the fingerprint’s characteristics (minutiae) from the captured image and create a fingerprint registration template which is stored in any non-volatile memory space.
  • To do user authentication, fingerprint is captured again and the system will create an accessing fingerprint template using the same method as creating a registration template. Then it will compare the accessing template with the registration template to determine if there is a “match” or “no match”.
  • If a user ID is provided, the system will compare the accessing template to the registration template of this particular user ID. This is called verification (1-to-1 matching).
  • If a user ID is not provided, the system will compare the accessing template to all the registration templates stored in the system. This is called identification (1-to-many matching).

The MacOS(version 10.5, 10.6 and 10.7, Intel CPU) SDK has exactly the same function as the Futronic Windows SDK. It includes header file that define API, libraries, and sample code for XCode application.

The SDK is implemented as Mach-O dynamic-link library (dylib)

The MacOS(version 10.5, 10.6 and 10.7, Intel CPU) SDK has the following major features:

  • Capturing fingerprint image from Futronic’s FS80 USB2.0 fingerprint scanner
  • Extracting fingerprint characteristics(minutiae) from real time captured image and creating a template which can be used:
    • For registration, the created template will be stored in the database
    • For authentication, the created template will be matched to pre-stored templates
  • Matching fingerprint templates(one of the matching templates must be generated from real time captured image) can be done in 1-to-1(identification) or 1-to-many(verification) manner
  • Recognition accuracy, FAR & FRR, can be adjusted to meet different security requirement.
  • Support Live Finger Detection(LFD) when using together with Futronic’s FS80 USB2.0 Fingerprint Scanner

Standard MacOS(version 10.5, 10.6 and 10.7, Intel CPU) SDK package includes sample program with source code to illustrate how to use the SDK. Please download the sample program from this page to try.

Tested MacOS (Intel CPU)platforms

Sample program has been compiled and tested under XCode 3.1.2 for MacOS version 10.5, 10.6 and 10.7, Intel CPU.
