Getting Started
1.1.
Outline
13
This manual illustrates how to use BioAdmin software. BioAdmin is a PC Windows
software for the control and management of Suprema’s BioEntry, BioStation and
BEACon products. BioAdmin includes various functions needed for a host station
for applications of access control and time & attendance using these devices.
For proper hardware connection, please refer to BioEntry Installation manual and
BioStation Installation manual.
There are two approaches in managing BioEntry and BioStation. :
z Using BioAdmin program which is the management software running on
Windows based PC platforms. This manual is mainly focused on operating
BioEntry and BioStation using BioAdmin software.
z Integrating the management functionality into customer’s application software
using SDK which contains versatile API’s to control BioEntry and BioStation. For
further information, please refer to SFM SDK Reference Manual, BioStation
SDK manual, and UniFinger Engine SDK Reference Manual.
1.2.
Fundamentals
This chapter provides introductive information on BioEntry, BioStation, and
BioAdmin including basic concepts, operation flow, and overview of the software.
1.2.1.
Finger scan device
Fingerprint access device is a device to authenticate the identity of each person
using fingerprints. It can be easily integrated into access control system by
connecting with access control panel through industry standard interface such as
Wiegand interface. Since fingerprints contain biometric features which are unique
for each person, fingerprint access device can be substituted for existing access
devices, such as barcode, magnetic card, keypad, or RF card devices, with high
security and efficiency.
1.2.2.
Finger scan smart card device
Fingerprint smart card device is an advanced model of fingerprint access device

14
which improves security of the system by integrating smart card technology.
Fingerprint data for each person is stored on user’s smart card and the device
authenticates the user by comparing the stored fingerprint data in the smart card
with the input fingerprint data.
1.2.3.
Template
A template is the binary data representing the features of each fingerprint. The
fingerprint image acquired from a fingerprint sensor is converted to a template,
which is stored on the memory of the fingerprint access device or on user’s smart
card. In authenticating a user, a new template is also generated and compared
with the stored templates.
1.2.4.
Enrollment
Enrollment is the process to store the fingerprint template with user information.
Through enrollment process, new users are entered into the system.
1.2.5.
Verification
Verification is the process of authenticating an input fingerprint with the fingerprint of
the specified user. On BioEntry Smart, a user places smart card containing
personal fingerprint template and user information. Then, the device carries out
verification process by scanning an input fingerprint. On BioEntry Pass, verification
process can be implemented by connecting external Wiegand device, such as RF
card device, which provides the current user ID.
1.2.6.
Identification
Identification is the process of searching a matched fingerprint among the stored
fingerprints on the device. BioEntry Pass and BioStation basically operate in
identification mode, which requires no additional input except the placement of a
finger.
1.2.7.
User database
User database includes user ID, user name, fingerprint templates, and so on.
BioAdmin software is based on the central management of user database. That is,
the user database is created, updated, and stored on the host PC. Then, it is
selectively distributed to the BioEntry and BioStation connected on the network
using transfer menu.
Copyright © 2006 by Suprema Inc.
http://www.supremainc.com
BioAdmin User Manual
1.2.8.
15
Transfer
Transfer to Device is used to transfer the user database of the host PC to BioEntry
and BioStation. The user information such as User ID, templates, access group,
and security level is transferred by this process.
Detailed operations are as follows.
z Enroll new users on BioEntry and BioStation
z Replace inconsistent templates on BioEntry and BioStation
z Delete templates of unknown users or de-selected users on BioEntry and
BioStation
Transfer from Device is used to upload the user formation from BioEntry and
BioStation to the database of host PC. The user information such as User ID,
Template Number, Number of Access Group, and Security Level can be uploaded
by this process.
1.2.9.
Site key for smartcard
Site key is a password for smart card to ensure that an authorized card should be
used for a specific installation. 48 bit key is used in BioEntry Smart allowing 0 to
281374976710655 (0xFFFFFFFFFFFF). For proper operation, the same key
should be configured on BioEntry Smart and user’s smart card.
1.3.
How to place a finger
1.3.1.
Select a finger to enroll
(1) It is recommended to use an index finger or a middle finger.
(2) Thumb, ring or little finger is relatively more difficult to place in a correct
position.
1.3.2.
How to place a finger on a sensor
(1) Place a finger as it completely covers the sensor with maximum contact.
(2) It is better to place the core part of a fingerprint to the center of a sensor.
ƒ People usually tend to place only the top end of a finger
ƒ Where is the core (center) of a fingerprint?
‚ A peak where spirals of fingerprint ridges are dense
‚ Usually opposite to lower part of a nail
‚ It is recommended to place a finger as the lower part of a nail is located at the
center of a sensor
Copyright © 2006 by Suprema Inc.

BioAdmin User Manual
16
(3) If a finger is placed as in the right picture, only a small area of a finger is
captured. So it is recommended to place a finger as in the left picture.
1.3.3.
Tips for different finger conditions
Suprema’s fingerprint products are designed to scan fingerprint smoothly
regardless of the conditions of a finger skin. However, if a fingerprint is difficult to
scan due to other influences, please refer to the followings tips.
(1) If a finger is stained with sweat or water, scan after wiping moisture off
(2) If a finger is covered with dust or impurities, scan after wiping them off
(3) If a finger is way too dry, scan after blowing warm breath on a fingertip.
1.3.4.
Advices on fingerprint enrollment
(1) In fingerprint recognition, enrollment process is very important. Therefore,
when enrolling a fingerprint, please try to place a finger correctly with care.
(2) In case of low acceptance ratio, the following actions are recommended.
ƒ Delete enrolled fingerprints and re-enroll the fingers.
ƒ Enroll the same finger additionally
ƒ Try with another finger if a finger is not easy to enroll due to scar or wornout.
(3) For the case when an enrolled fingerprint can’t be used due to scar or
holding a baggage, it is recommended to enroll more than two fingers.

ƒ 26 bit standard
The 26 bit standard format is most widely used and consists of 8 bit FC code and
16 bit ID. You cannot change the bit definition and the parity bits in 26 bit standard
format.
ƒ Pass Through format
Pass Through format is used when only the format of ID field is known. When the
Wiegand input string is detected, BioEntry device extracts ID bits and starts
verification with the ID. If the verification succeeds, the device outputs the Wiegand
input string as unchanged. Parity check and advanced options are ignored in this
format. By definition, Pass Through format is only useful when the operation mode
is 1:1. If the mode is 1:N, the bits other than ID field are set to 0.
For example, assume that 32 bit Pass Through format is composed as follows:
XIIIIIII IIIIIIIX XXXIIIII IIIIIIIX (left most bit is 0th bit, BIT0)
I: Id field, X: Unknown field
You can configure this format in the following sequences.
Copyright © 2006 by Suprema Inc.
http://www.supremainc.com
BioAdmin User Manual
104
‚ (1) Enter 32 in the Total Bits field.
‚ (2) Select ID bits according to the definitions.
‚ (3) Press Next. You cannot specify parity bits in Pass Through mode.
ƒ Custom format
When users know all the information of a Wiegand format, Custom format can be
defined. When a Wiegand input string is detected, BioEntry device checks the parity
bits first. If all the parity bits are correct, the device extracts ID bits and starts
verification with the ID. Users can also set alternative values of each field and
enable advanced options such as Fail ID. If the verification succeeds, the device
outputs a Wiegand string. The output string may be different from the input string
according to the alternative values and advanced options.
For example, assume that 44 bit Custom format is composed as follows:
EAAAAAAA IIIIIIII IIIIIIII BBBBBBBI IIIIIIII IIIO
(left most bit is 0th bit, BIT0)
E: Even parity for BIT1 ~ BIT22
O: Odd parity for BIT23 ~ BIT42
I: ID bits(Field1 and Field 3), A: Field 0, B: Field 2
You can configure this format in the following sequences.

System Setting
User can set up the parameters of BioEntry on the System tab. When this tab is
selected, the system setting page is updated on the main window.
z Operation Mode
ƒ 1:1 verification : if 1:1 mode is selected in BioEntry Smart, present user
smart card first and finger scan starts. In case of BioEntry Pass, finger scan
is processed by Wiegand input from external device such as ID card or
user fingerprint.
ƒ 1:N identification : in 1:N mode, finger scan (authentication) is done with
user’s fingerprint only. As device sensor is always on input standby mode,
1:N scan starts right away once a finger is placed on.
ƒ Both : Both 1:1 verification and 1:N identification are supported.
z Baud rate
Copyright © 2006 by Suprema Inc.
http://www.supremainc.com
BioAdmin User Manual
110
Baud rate is the number of times per second that the carrier signal value
changes state. If you have some problems to communicate with BioEntry or
with BioStation, changing baud rate to lower value can be a solution.
z Image Quality
When a fingerprint is scanned, the module will check if the quality of the image
is adequate for further processing. The image quality parameter specifies the
strictness of this quality check.
z Security Level
Security level specifies FAR(False Acceptance Ratio). If it is set to 1/100,000, it
means that the probability of accepting false fingerprints is 1/100,000. Since
FAR and FRR(False Rejection Ratio) is in inverse proportion to each other,
FRR will increase with higher security levels. Default value is Auto Normal.
z Scan Timeout
Scan Timeout specifies the timeout period for user input. If a user does not
make his/her finger scanned, place smartcard, or input Wiegand during this
period, error will be returned.
z Sensitivity
Sensitivity specifies sensor sensitivity to detect a finger. On high sensitivity, the
module will accept the finger input more easily. In other hand, by decreasing the
sensitivity, the input fingerprint image will be more stabilized. In case of optical
models, sensitivity to sunlight is also alleviated by decreasing sensitivity
parameter. Default value is 7.
z Fast Mode
When more than hundreds of templates are stored in BioEntry, the matching
time for 1:N identification can be very long. Fast Mode parameter can be used
to shorten the 1:N matching time with little degradation of authentication
performance. The security level – FAR – is not affected by this parameter, but
the FRR can be a bit higher than in normal mode. In typical cases, Fast Mode 1
is as 2 ~ 3 times faster than Normal mode. And Fast Mode 5 is 6 ~ 7 times
faster than Normal mode. Default value is 0.
z Matching Timeout
Timeout period for 1:N matching. If identification process is not finished during
this period, error will be returned.

BioEntry device is connected to the controller by ABA Track II output, not by
Wiegand interface, you should check Use ABA Track II. In that case, the output
signal will be in ABA Track II format. You can also specify the number of
characters for ABA Track II output.
ƒ 26 bit standard
The 26 bit standard format is most widely used and consists of 8 bit FC code and
16 bit ID. You cannot change the bit definition and the parity bits in 26 bit standard
format.
ƒ Pass Through format
Pass Through format is used when only the format of ID field is known. When the
Wiegand input string is detected, BioEntry device extracts ID bits and starts
verification with the ID. If the verification succeeds, the device outputs the Wiegand
input string as unchanged. Parity check and advanced options are ignored in this
format. By definition, Pass Through format is only useful when the operation mode
is 1:1. If the mode is 1:N, the bits other than ID field are set to 0.
For example, assume that 32 bit Pass Through format is composed as follows:
XIIIIIII IIIIIIIX XXXIIIII IIIIIIIX (left most bit is 0th bit, BIT0)
I: Id field, X: Unknown field
You can configure this format in the following sequences.

‚ (2) Select ID bits according to the definitions.
‚ (3) Press Next. You cannot specify parity bits in Pass Through mode.
ƒ Custom format
When users know all the information of a Wiegand format, Custom format can be
defined. When a Wiegand input string is detected, BioEntry device checks the parity
bits first. If all the parity bits are correct, the device extracts ID bits and starts
verification with the ID. Users can also set alternative values of each field and
enable advanced options such as Fail ID. If the verification succeeds, the device
outputs a Wiegand string. The output string may be different from the input string
according to the alternative values and advanced options.
For example, assume that 44 bit Custom format is composed as follows:
EAAAAAAA IIIIIIII IIIIIIII BBBBBBBI IIIIIIII IIIO
(left most bit is 0th bit, BIT0)
E: Even parity for BIT1 ~ BIT22
O: Odd parity for BIT23 ~ BIT42

Site Key Setting
To prevent unauthorized access, Smartcards are encrypted with a 48 bit site key.
For a BioEntry device to decrypt a Smartcard, the site key stored in the device
should match with that of the card. Users can store as many as two site keys in the
BioEntry device and select two advanced options. If the Use Secondary Key
option is selected, the device will try both the primary and secondary keys when
decrypting a Smartcard. If it is not selected, the device will try only the primary key.
The Auto Update option is useful when changing the keys of Smartcards. With
this option on, the device will re-encrypt a Smartcard with the primary key when it is
encrypted with the secondary key.
Note : Site keys should be handled with utmost caution. If it is revealed, the
whole system is not secure any more.
