WINBIO_BIOMETRIC_TYPE Constants

The following constants represent the standard biometric types defined by National Institute of Standards and Technology Information (NISTIR) 6529-A, otherwise known as the Common Biometric Exchange Formats Framework (CBEFF) Patron Format A. Only WINBIO_TYPE_FINGERPRINT is currently supported.

ConstantDescription
WINBIO_STANDARD_TYPE_MASK

Bitmask that specifies the supported set of biometric factors.

WINBIO_NO_TYPE_AVAILABLE

No biometric type is available.

WINBIO_TYPE_MULTIPLE

Multiple types are specified.

WINBIO_TYPE_FACIAL_FEATURES

Facial features are used to determine the identity of an individual.

WINBIO_TYPE_VOICE

Frequency and volume patterns in the voice of an individual are used to determine the identity of an individual.

WINBIO_TYPE_FINGERPRINT

Fingerprint patterns are used to determine the identity of an individual.

WINBIO_TYPE_IRIS

Iris patterns are used to determine the identity of an individual. This value is supported starting in Windows 10.

WINBIO_TYPE_RETINA

Vein patterns in the retina are used to determine the identity of an individual.

WINBIO_TYPE_HAND_GEOMETRY

The shape of a hand of an individual is used to determine the identity of an individual.

WINBIO_TYPE_SIGNATURE_DYNAMICS

The patterns of force that the individual uses when they sign their name are used to determine the identity of an individual.

WINBIO_TYPE_KEYSTROKE_DYNAMICS

The speed and error patterns in typing by an individual are used to determine the identity of an individual.

WINBIO_TYPE_LIP_MOVEMENT

The changes in the lips of an individual that occur when they speak are used to determine the identity of an individual.

WINBIO_TYPE_THERMAL_FACE_IMAGE

The temperature patterns in the face of an individual are used to determine the identity of an individual.

WINBIO_TYPE_THERMAL_HAND_IMAGE

The temperature patterns in the hand of an individual are used to determine the identity of an individual.

WINBIO_TYPE_GAIT

The patterns of movement that occur when the individual walks are used to determine the identity of an individual.

WINBIO_TYPE_SCENT

The scent of an individual is used to determine the identity of an individual.

WINBIO_TYPE_DNA

Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) sequences are used to determine the identity of an individual.

WINBIO_TYPE_EAR_SHAPE

The shape of an ear of the individual is used to determine the identity of an individual.

WINBIO_TYPE_FINGER_GEOMETRY

The shapes of the fingers of an individual are used to determine the identity of an individual.

WINBIO_TYPE_PALM_PRINT

The shape of the palm is used to determine the identity of an individual.

WINBIO_TYPE_VEIN_PATTERN

Patterns in the veins underneath the skin of the hand of an individual are used to determine the identity of an individual.

WINBIO_TYPE_FOOT_PRINT

The shape of the foot is used to determine the identity of an individual.

WINBIO_TYPE_OTHER

The supported biometric data is not defined by the current constants.

WINBIO_TYPE_PASSWORD

Password data is used to determine the identity of an individual.

WINBIO_TYPE_ANY

Any type of data is used to determine the identity of an individual.
