Section 1: You and Your Puppy® Fingerprint Identity Token
If you follow some general guidelines, you will be quite happy with the performance and
capabilities of your Puppy unit.
The Unit
Following in the footsteps of the award-winning FIU-710
fingerprint identity token, Sony’s new FIU-900 product
includes all the innovative features of its predecessor in an
exciting Memory Stick™ media form factor. Just like the
FIU-710 product, the new FIU-900 fingerprint unit scans,
matches, and stores fingerprints internally, completely
independent of a PC or network server. The FIU-900
device also features a number of enhancements over the
FIU-710 model, including a 128 x 128-pixel fingerprint sensor, improved verification accuracy
of fingerprints (even when deformed by pressure on the reading element or scratched), and a
faster verification speed.
The FIU-900 was designed specifically for use with the new
MSAC-US20 Memory Stick USB reader/writer or MSACUS70 Memory Stick USB reader/writer mouse (both shown
at left), and will not work with other Memory Stick slots,
such as those on Sony VAIO™ PCs or Clie® PDAs.
The fingerprint sensor is the silver/gold square on one end of the
unit. The Puppy device offers robust fingerprint imaging
technology based on a technique known as capacitance, which
digitally reads the fingerprint without leaving ink residue on
your finger. Capacitance sensors cannot be fooled by paper
copies and do not require cleaning.
Connections
Sony’s Memory Stick media adapters connect to your
Windows® 2000/XP operating system-equipped PC with a USB
connector. During installation of the adapter, connect it
directly to your PC’s USB port. The Puppy units will not be
recognized if connected to a USB hub, and your PC may
become unstable.
A USB extension cord is perfectly acceptable for use.
Training Your Puppy Unit
Page 5
Please follow the instructions provided with your Memory Stick™ adapter to insert and
remove your FIU-900 unit correctly. So that you can use other Memory Stick media, and
retrieve files, pictures, or music, you may remove the actual FIU-900 fingerprint identity token at
any time, though we recommend that you do not unplug it when it is required for a fingerprint
check: you could cause an error. If this occurs, simply re-insert the device and provide your
fingerprint as requested. Never remove your Puppy® unit during fingerprint enrollment.
Fingerprints
Puppy units use highly robust sensing technology to take
images of your fingerprints. However, there are instances
where the units may have some difficulty reading your
fingerprint. Here are some things you can do to avoid this
situation!
1. The Puppy unit reads the patterns of ridges and
valleys on the portion of your finger between the
tip and the first bend in your finger. Do not
simply put the tip of your finger on the sensor and
hope for the unit to detect it! And don’t turn your
finger to the right or the left, or place it upside
down… use the finger guide on the adapter to
judge correct finger placement. Move or slide the
cover up first, and then place your finger flat and comfortably resting entirely on
the sensor surface, so that it touches the metal plate around the sensor itself. Your
finger should fit within the finger guide on the adapter. See the images on this page
for reference.
2. Be comfortable! Don’t try to use a finger that causes your hand to be at an
uncomfortable angle to your desktop. Enroll and use the finger that’s most convenient
and most comfortable.
3. Always be sure to register at least two fingers when setting up a user. This way, if
you’ve hurt your finger and have a bandage on it, you still have a ‘backup’ finger.
4. During enrollment (registration), do
your best to provide consistent finger
placement: THIS IS CRITICAL. Good
enrollment enables the unit to provide the
best matching possible during your daily
use of the device, and thus this process is
one of the most important steps in setting
up your Puppy unit. Don’t rush it!
5. If you typically have dry skin, the Puppy
unit may have difficulty reading your
finger. Try touching your finger to your
forehead or the side of your nose and then
placing your finger on the unit. The oils
Page 6
Training Your Puppy Unit
will help the sensor to correctly read the ridges and valleys of your fingerprint.
6. If you typically have very moist skin or tend to perspire a lot, the Puppy® unit may have
difficulty reading your finger. Try rubbing your finger on your slacks or sleeve and then
place your finger on the unit.

Section 3: Enrolling Your Fingerprints on the Puppy® Device
SecureSuite® XS Workstation and the FIU-900 Puppy Unit
The FIU-900 fingerprint identity token scans, stores, and matches fingerprints on-board the
device. This means that the Puppy unit is tied to the users that are enrolled within it. Each FIU900 device can hold a limited number of fingerprints (a family or small workgroup, for
example), or alternatively, each device can be assigned to an individual user. You can transport
the unit between SecureSuite XS Workstation-enabled client PCs in a client/server environment
only. For more on this, please refer to the SecureSuite XS Server Guide and documentation.
First-time Enrollment
IMPORTANT: Only five distinct users can use their fingerprints to access the PC. These
fingerprint users can enroll as many fingerprints as they wish. However, other users on the PC
will need to use a password-only logon.*
When you are setting up a new user, you must enter a password for the user, even if the
user will not use the password method, as Windows® interprets this user account as not
requiring security. If you are working with an existing user, you will probably already have a
password, and will not need to enter a new one.
Also, when creating a new user, be sure not to set ‘Need to Change Password at Next
Logon’ and then choose only fingerprint authentication for that user (no password). This
will cause an error and may result in Windows becoming inoperable. Set the former command
first, and then, once the new password is set, make the user a fingerprint-only user (see step 9
below).
To enroll a user with the FIU-900 fingerprint identity token:
1. On your first restart after installing SecureSuiteXS Workstation, depending on your
operating system, you will see the following:
*
Additional user licenses are available. Contact Sony for more details.

Section 4: Using SecureSuite® XS Workstation
This section provides you with the basic tools needed to use your Puppy® device with I/O
Software’s SecureSuite XS Workstation software to logon to your PC, replace passwords in
applications and Microsoft Internet Explorer, and secure your files from prying eyes. Advanced
settings and configuration instructions are explained in the SecureSuite XS Workstation Guide
on the enclosed CD.
Important: If you are concerned about losing your passwords in the event your computer
or hard drive crashes, it might be a good idea to keep a copy of your passwords in a secure
location.
SecureLogon™
Enhances the standard logon procedure for Windows® operating systems. Provide your
credentials (e.g. password, fingerprint) when prompted at logon. Assuming you have enrolled
correctly on the device following the steps in Section 3, you can log off and log back in with
your fingerprint! This application also can lock your computer after a set amount of time or
during the screensaver. Just be sure to set your screensaver to Password protected.
SecureSession® for Applications
Stores passwords and other text based information for Windows
applications and enters them when required. After entering the text
click on the SecureSession for Applications system tray icon (circled) to register the dialog and
follow the prompts.
SecureSession™ for Internet Explorer
Stores authentication information for web sites and enters it for you. Once you identify yourself
to the Puppy device, the software will automatically send your username and password, for
example, to the web site. The SecureSession Logon Helper dialog will automatically appear
when you initially submit the information for a web
form, such as a username and password. Register the
information and the Logon helper dialog will
prompt you to identify yourself to submit the
information with each subsequent visit to the
registered web form. You can also click on the
SecureSuite icon in the toolbar to access the
SecureSession application.
Page 16
Training Your Puppy Unit
SecureFolder®
Secures single files and folders.* With a simple right-click on a folder you
get the option to Secure or Unsecure it, allowing only the authenticated
user to view its contents. To work with single files just "drag and drop" the
files out of and back into a secured folder.
The first time you secure a file, you will be prompted to enter an
Emergency Recovery Passphrase. This option allows you to type a
password that can be used to access your encrypted file in the event the
SecureFolder application is uninstalled or your user account is deleted. If
you choose not to enter a password, you will have no recourse if the SecureFolder application is
uninstalled, and you will lose your encrypted files and folders. More details on this can be found
in Chapter 10 of the SecureSuite XS Workstation Guide on the enclosed CD.
SecureLaunch™
Prevents unauthorized users from running Windows® applications. Lock applications that don’t
typically have security associated with them.
From the Start menu, select Programs, SecureSuite, and click SecureSuite System Settings, or rightclick SecureSuite icon on the system tray and click SecureSuite System Settings. Select the
Applications in the left pane, then SecureLaunch. Click Add, and browse for the appropriate
executable (.exe) file. You must have administrative rights to access this feature.
*
You cannot secure files or folders in the Windows or Program Files directories, as well as certain system
configuration files, since modifying their contents can cause your programs to stop working correctly.

Section 7: Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
How does the FIU-900 unit read my fingerprint?
The Puppy® device offers robust fingerprint imaging technology based on a technique known as
capacitance, which digitally reads the fingerprint without leaving ink residue on your finger.
Capacitance sensors cannot be fooled by paper copies and do not require cleaning.
How do I use the PKI functions of the FIU-900 Puppy device?
The FIU-900 unit features built-in advanced PKI encryption and digital signature functions, but
currently these functions are not explicitly available for users within SecureSuite® XS
Workstation. If you need to access the PKI functions for particular applications, or plan to use
the FIU-900 with a dedicated PKI architecture, contact Sony; Sony will be producing an
appropriate software utility in the near future.
Do I need to clean the device?
No, the Puppy unit does not require regular cleaning. However, if you notice debris (dust, etc.)
collecting in the corners of the sensor area, you can clean the sensor with a dry tissue or cloth.
Why does my computer freeze or crash when I plug in the Puppy unit?
Be sure that you are connecting the Memory Stick™ media adapter directly to your PC’s USB
port.
When do I insert the FIU-900 unit during installation?
You may plug in the device when prompted during the installation process of the SecureSuite XS
Workstation software or after installation. Do not plug the device in before the prompt, as it may
cause your installation to fail.
I plugged the FIU-900 in before the installation, but Windows® could not find the drivers,
and now SecureSuite can’t find the FIU-900. What do I do?
Follow these steps:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
Remove the FIU-900 unit and reboot your PC.
Go to Start Menu, Settings, Control Panel, Add/Remove Programs.
Find SecureSuite in the list of programs and click Change.
Select Modify from the list of options. Click Next.
In the Custom Installation dialog box, find Authentication Methods and be sure to
check all the boxes for the FIU-900 method. Select This feature will be installed on
local hard drive. Click Next, and then click Install.
6. Click Finish and let the computer reboot.
Training Your Puppy Unit
Page 21
7. Close the Add/Remove Programs dialog box.
8. Insert the Puppy® unit and direct the device installation routine (if prompted) to the
folder containing the “fiu900.inf” and “fiu900.sys” files.
9. Look in the Start Menu, Settings, Control Panel, Device Manager, under the Ports
(COM & LPT) heading, for the FIU-900 series driver to be sure it has installed
correctly.
10. Open SecureSuite System Settings. Double click on Authentication Methods. Rightclick in the right pane and choose Add Method. The FIU-900 should now be an option.
11. Choose the FIU-900 and click OK.
12. You will now be able to add the device as an authentication method within the
SecureSuite® XS Workstation software.
If this does not work, please uninstall the SecureSuite XS Workstation software completely,
and reinstall the software, being sure to insert the FIU-900 unit only when prompted.
Why is the FIU-900 not reading my fingerprint when I try to enroll or use the device?
Be sure…
…the FIU-900 unit is correctly inserted into the adapter and the adapter’s cable is firmly
plugged in to the adapter and the PC’s USB port.
…that your fingerprint is correctly placed on the device (see Section 1).
…if your finger is too dry, to touch your finger to your forehead or the side of your nose
and then place your finger on the unit. The oils will help the sensor to correctly read the
ridges and valleys of your fingerprint.
…if your finger is too moist, to rub your finger on your slacks or sleeve and then place
your finger on the unit.
I have a Windows® domain account, and the software will not allow me to use or enroll a
fingerprint. What’s wrong?
If you logon to a domain and are a domain user, SecureSuite XS Workstation will not allow you
to logon using the Puppy device without SecureSuite XS Server present on the domain (you can
still logon with a password). In order to use this software, you will need to have a local machine
account.
Why does my PC takes 5-10 minutes or longer to return to the logon prompt after I install
SecureSuite XS Workstation and reboot?
You probably forgot to turn off your virus detection software. Always be sure to disable antivirus software before installation.
How can I enroll more than 5 distinct users on the FIU-900?
SecureSuite XS Workstation ships with a license for 5 distinct users. In order to enable more
users, please contact Sony.
Page 22
Training Your Puppy Unit
After enrolling a new user on my system, I notice that any finger (even the wrong one!) will
allow me to access the PC. This is obviously not very secure…why is this happening??
You did not enter a password when setting up the new user. Windows® interprets the lack of a
password to mean that this user account does not require secure access. Enter a password for this
user via the User Properties dialog box and this problem should be solved.
I get an error when I verify my fingerprints after enrollment. One or more of the prints do
not match. How can I prevent this from happening?
You are not placing your finger consistently on the Puppy® unit. During enrollment be sure to
place your finger in a similar fashion per the instructions in Section 1.
Why is the choice of AND/OR settings so important during enrollment?
If you choose to make your user account an AND user, you will be required to enter both a
password and place your fingerprint before you can access your account. For security purposes
your original Windows password is then randomized within the SecureSuite® XS Workstation
architecture. If you uninstall the software, your Windows password will therefore be different
than your original password, and an administrator will need to reset it. You can change this
default setting by accessing the SecureSuite System Settings dialog box.
I have successfully enrolled my username and password for a website with SecureSession®
for Internet Explorer, but when I come back to the website, it’s not prompting me to use
my fingerprint. What’s wrong?
Sometimes, depending on your configuration, the prompt to use SecureSession will appear
behind your current Internet Explorer window. Try to minimize your active window and see if
the prompt appears.
I uninstalled and reinstalled SecureSuite XS Workstation, and now I can’t read the files I
previously encrypted with SecureFolder®. Why?
Unless you entered an Emergency Recovery Passphrase when you first used SecureFolder, there
is no way to retrieve the files. If you are concerned with losing your files in the event of a
catastrophic failure of your PC, be sure to enter a Passphrase when first using SecureFolder. See
the SecureSuite XS Workstation Guide on the software CD for more information.
Why do I need to turn off my screensaver before uninstalling the SecureSuite XS
Workstation software?
If the screensaver activates during uninstallation, the SecureSuite XS Workstation software may
not allow you to leave the screensaver, thus causing the uninstallation to fail. In this event, your
PC may not be recoverable, and you may need to reinstall Windows entirely. Always be sure to
deactivate the screensaver before uninstallation.

I just put my computer in standby mode and then took it out of standby mode. The
SecureSuite® XS Workstation software does not recognize that the FIU-900 unit is plugged
in. What do I do?
After recovery from hibernation or standby mode, the FIU-900 Puppy® unit might not be
recognized. If this occurs, please click Cancel or OK and unplug the device. Wait a few
seconds, plug the Puppy unit back in, wait five seconds, and then try the process again. If the
device is still not recognized, authenticate with an alternate method (i.e.: password), if available,
or restart the computer.
