Main goals of this project:

1) Wide distribution of biometric fingerprint authentication solutions on Linux/Unix platforms.
2) Even though most algorithms will be available only in object form, it's possible to create a high quality and successful software for developers and users.

History (from wizard)

In 2000-2001 years I worked for Biolink, well-known innovative biometric company. Good company (always keep good company!). Nice people. Company had developed all their solutions for Microsoft Windows platforms and didn't had any plans for Unix world. But I wanted to port and used this biometric software on Unix/Linux platform. Of course, I also wanted to see this software to work on my main platform - FreeBSD. These plans were failed and I leaved company at Spring 2001.

Good people (always keep also good people!) found me in November 2003 and gave the initial sponsorship to create the biometric software for Linux. This was company Futronic - manufacturer of biometric hardware and software. I must to thank this company also for a given permission to distribute this open-source package.
