The Biometric Toolkit is a plug-in for LabVIEW which enables functionality for managing enrollment, identification, verification, and diagnostics to create a more secure application environment. The toolkit also enables tracking application activity, down to recording the exact moment an action was taken.
For developers, an example is provided which demonstrates all aspects of the implementation. The toolkit supports multiple simultaneous LabVIEW projects and applications while restricting access to the fingerprint reader. Further, it launches all dialogs in VI Server to facilitate integration directly into any architecture without locking the code at run-time.
After encryption, a SQL server database is used for storing each
user's login information. This schema is utilized in managing
employee enrollment, storing/updating employee login data and
fingerprint records, and verifying a correct user login.
The toolkit is also complete with a diagnostic tool, which allows  validation of each fingerprint reader. The diagnostic tool checks to confirm operation of necessary drivers, sensor presence, software capture initialization, user input, image acquisition, and fingerprint template extraction. This level of detail allows quick validation and diagnosis of the biometric login system.
The Biometric Login Toolkit currently interfaces to commercially available fingerprint readers from manufacturers such as Microsoft, DigitalPersona, Bio-I Cyte, Biotouch/Futronic, M2SYS, and many more.
