Node.JS Biometric Fingerprint Authentication Software Pack



Background Information

Hey! Glad you finally here !

Wondering how you can ever add Biometric Fingerprint Authentication in a Node.JS Web Software application?

Worry NOT !

We will show you how we it did it here below.

This web page here will not waste your time introducing Node.JS or attempt to discuss the Node.JS basics here. We understand you are here because you only want to know how to add Biometric Finbgerprint Authentication into your Web Browser based Node.JS software application.

Why did your Company / Organisation choose to use Node.JS over the very many other Web Technologies available today?

We know you had Speed, Extensibility and Scalability in mind.

Previously JavaScript was used for coding client side features only, nowadays with Node.JS you are able to do develop client side and server side components with JavaScript. Yeah FullStack !

Considering the reliability of Node.JS to be the Best Open Source Bet for FullStack development and its Speed, Extensibility and Scalability, tell us why Node.JS is not one of the Best Engineered Web Technolgies in these modern times ?

Trully none comes close!

Node.JS ROCKS BIG TIME !

Now ......... here is an eye opener!

Biometric Fingerprint Authentication solutions need FAST SPEEDS! They need Super Speeds to work in industrial Web Browser based Software Applications like ERPs. This is where Node.JS stands tall among other Web Technologies.

Node.JS' Extensibility and Scalability makes it possible to integrate it with other additional functionalities as will be needed by an Organisation as their User and Client needs Grow! One of these Requirement that sooner than later becomes a necessity is the need to implement Access Control Features in an Organisation's Node.JS software application to establish e.g Data Integrity, Enforce levels of accountability among users of system, Prevent Fraud among many other possible reasons.

Integrating your Node.JS software application with Biometric Fingerprint Authentication not only Helps you deploy a User authentication machanism but Helps you know which particular User did what in the system because unlike Passwords, PINS or Secret Access Codes, Biometrics of a Person cannot be shared with another person. Biometrics traits of one person bear no resemblance with that of another person! Not even with Twins. This is what we call Non Repudiation

We used MySQL in this Node.JS Biometric Fingerprint Authenticaion Software Pack though it was within our means to use any other RDBMS Database.

Which Database does your Organisation use for your Node.JS Software Application's Back-end


Fingerprint Authentication

Currently, Node.JS Biometric Fingerprint Authenticaion integration module software pack retrieves Biometric Data and User Particulars for Biometric Fingerprint Authentication from MySQL in the Server Computer. This is so for ease of demonstrating the Node.JS Biometric Fingerprint Authentication features and their functionality otherwise you can chose to use any other supported Database for your Back-end as is deemed necessary by your organisation


Prerequisite for Running Node.JS Biometric Fingerprint Authentication Software Application pack

You will need to pre-install the following npm modules;

1. express - This will allow you to serve your Node.JS remotely among many other functions it performs. Think of IIS or Apache web server here. If you have an existing Node.JS software application chances are that you already have it installed.

2. path - This helps you work with directories paths and file paths.

3. body-parser - This gives your Node.JS application capability to unzip incoming data objects served from server side.

4. route - This helps you handle route patterns and http (https) requests.

5. mysql - This module helps you connect to a MySQL database and handle CRUD operations in a MySQL Database table.
