SigID.ocx is an Active-X control that allows the developer to capture encrypted fingerprint templates, store them, and use them later to compare against newly-captured fingerprints on-the-fly. Each fingerprint template is automatically encrypted prior to its delivery to the developer.
NOTE: Itís important to understand there are two possible ways to use the SigID ActiveX control:
1. The developer is handed back the fingerprint template with which to compare later fingerprints in a portable file format (.TFT) or ASCII hex string (for easy database storage). This allows maximum flexibility in terms of storing fingerprint templates, but certain fingerprint comparisons are not possible using this approach (namely one-to-many searches).
2. A proprietary, encrypted database (a DAT file) is used to store the fingerprint templates. Whereas this approach limits the storage flexibility of approach 1, it maximizes fingerprint comparisons in terms of speed and possible search options (namely one-to-many searches).
These approaches are mutually exclusive, and the developer must decide which approach best suits the application. Methods beginning with the prefix pr (portable) signify methods falling under approach #1, the most portable option. Methods beginning with the prefix db (database) signify methods falling under approach #2, the maximized proprietary database option. Methods that begin with neither prefix are neutral methods, and are not dependent upon one approach or another.
