|Overview of Fingerprint Software Development Kit (SDK)|
A Fingerprint SDK is a software toolkit that allows the integration of biometric fingerprint recognition into various applications. They typically utilize either DLL or ActiveX (COM) to interface with the integrated application. By referencing these DLL or COM objects, developers are able to utilize fingerprint identification functionality from within a desired application. Fingerprint SDKs provide a basic framework of functions to talk to a fingerprint scanner, capture an image, extract the unique minutiae data from the image, and compare two sets of extracted minutiae data. All of the more complex features and functionality are built upon this framework.

Common Developer Issues with Fingerprint SDKs:
Good fingerprint identification scan VS a bad fingerprint identification scan
