Re: Validity Fingerprint Reader Linux

Regarding this validity sensor, you cannot treat this as a regular fingerprint reader due to fingerprint reader activity is at chip level and closes to user. You have to treat this as a smart card reader or something similar, such as yubikey.

 

Conventional fprintd or ndiswrapper approach will never work. You at least need TLS certificate from Validity to continue.

Re: Validity Fingerprint Reader Linux

Would like to throw my support/request behind this...  Running openSUSE with Lenovo X260.  I know the HP EliteBook's use Validity and they have an RPM for linux on their website...

Hi dbao -

Thanks for the great info.

 

If I look at the bios (I use a thinkpad x1 5th gen) i see options to delete stored fingerprints, which would support your assertion.

 

So we (well, the people looking to buikd a linux driver) need a TLS cert. Then what? Does it talk standard FIDO?

 

---

see also this whitepaper: 

So you are saying it is a 'Match in Sensor' chip as defined in this whitepaper:

http://www.synaptics.com/sites/default/files/fingerprint-sensing-biometric-security.pdf

 so this is one of the new 'Match in Sensor' type chips?

Re: Validity Fingerprint Reader Linux

Would also love to benefit from the 138a:0097 FP on my brand new X1 carbon 5th gen (running on Arch Linux).

 

Please Lenovo, at least give some support to the community work to provide the driver.

Re: Validity Fingerprint Reader Linux

Sad that I can't find a linux driver for the fingerprint reader on my Yoga 260 (device 138a:0090)

=(

Re: Validity Fingerprint Reader Linux

Linux community really needs a driver for those new Validity finger print readers.
