Fingerprint enrollment is managed using Windows-based software and a USB port. The fingerprint template is stored only on the card and is never transmitted to the external host to allay fears of privacy violations and lower the costs for biometric reader integration. The bioCLASS line is now in testing and expected to be available for sale this summer.
