The system integrates with  Biometric Devices for multi-factor authentication. There are two types of biometric authentication devices supported that securely login to the system as a user. These are the Mantra MSF100 and the Morpho 1300 E3. It requires 2 scans to be enrolled after the user attempts their first login configured with this type of MFA. With every other login attempt the fingerprint is scanned and validated for successfully accessing the system.

Before you begin

  • Make sure the user has hardware device drivers installed.

  • The service for that particular driver is running.
