EngineAdapterCheckForDuplicate function

Called by the Windows Biometric Framework to determine whether a new template in the pipeline duplicates any template already saved in the database regardless of the identity associated with the templates.

Syntax


HRESULT WINAPI EngineAdapterCheckForDuplicate(
  _Inout_ PWINBIO_PIPELINE          Pipeline,
  _Out_                             Identity,
  _Out_   PWINBIO_BIOMETRIC_SUBTYPE SubFactor,
  _Out_   PBOOLEAN                  Duplicate
);

Parameters

Pipeline [in, out]

Pointer to a WINBIO_PIPELINE structure associated with the biometric unit performing the operation.

Identity [out]

Pointer to a WINBIO_IDENTITY structure that receives the GUID or SID of the duplicate template stored in the database.

SubFactor [out]

Pointer to a WINBIO_BIOMETRIC_SUBTYPE variable that receives the sub-factor associated with the duplicate template in the database.

Duplicate [out]

A pointer to a Boolean value that specifies whether a matching template was found in the database.

Return value

Return codeDescription
E_POINTER

A mandatory pointer parameter is NULL.

WINBIO_E_INVALID_DEVICE_STATE

There is no enrollment template in the pipeline engine context.

 

Remarks

The Windows Biometric Framework calls this function before committing a new enrollment template to the database of a biometric unit. The purpose of this function is to prevent collisions in the engine adapter matching space. Collisions can result in false-positive matches.

This function should perform a content-based query by using the storage adapter to determine whether the template matches any template already in the database.

If this method finds a duplicate template in the database, it should return the Identity and SubFactor values for the matching template, set the Duplicate parameter to TRUE, and return an HRESULT value of S_OK.

If this method does not find a matching template in the database, it should set the Duplicate parameter to FALSE but return an HRESULT value of S_OK.

//      Identity    - GUID or SID of the duplicate template stored in the

//      SubFactor   - sub-factor associated with the duplicate template in
//                    the database
//      Duplicate   - Boolean value that specifies whether a matching template
