Biomatric based auth services using Fan-out driver


Greetings for the Day!!!

This query is out of curiosity, can we utilize fan-out driver
authentication service with minimal Linux environment on ARM based
architecture?

Regards,
RK

The fan-out driver is a compiled driver, which currently runs on the
following platforms and architectures:

Windows (32 and 64)
Linux, FreeBSD, Debian AMD/Intel (32 and 64)
Solaris (x86 and Sparc)
AIX (PPC)
HPUX (IA64 and RISC)
Tru64 (alpha)
zLinux (s390x 64-bit)

It's not been compiled for ARM.

Re: Biomatric based auth services using Fan-out driver


Thanks Jeremy!!

Few more question:
- Does fan-out support biometric based authentication?

If not, which drier can be used for biometric authentication or custom
NMAS development should be done.

RK

Re: Biomatric based auth services using Fan-out driver


The Fan-out Driver can redirect authentication attempts from PAM-enabled
applications.

So with "login" (the Linux/UNIX app) for example, you would modify the
PAM config file for login, and the username/password will be sent to the
Fan-out Driver to authenticate against eDir.

Theoretically if you had a PAM-enabled biometric app that could map the
biometrics to a username/password, then it could be possible.

But I am mainly theorizing and I will refer this to my colleague Jeremy
for clarification.

There may be another NetIQ/Novell product that supports biometrics.
