The FUSE Enrollment Manager serves three main purposes; enroll fingerprint data, charge batteries inside cards and program access control keys.
It consists of a low-profile USB desktop device and matching Windows application. The desktop device provide energy through NFC field to charge batteries inside the cards and a powerful secure channel for communication with the cards. This channel is used for communication between cards and the Windows application where programming and enrollment are administrated.
With biometrics profoundly improving cards security and card user experience, FUSE has put emphasis on integrating the same level of security and ease of use to the enrollment process. The enrollment is essential as a fundamental requirement in fingerprint sensing is making a positive match with a known representation of the user’s fingerprint. The cards are initially in an “enrollment” mode to store a representation of the fingerprint, which then gets used during every subsequent access. The FUSE Enrollment Manager offers step-by-step instructions to securely store this data in their card.
