Supporting Secure Channels in WBDI Drivers

To support a secure channel between the host and the device in a WBDI driver, you must encapsulate the security-related functionality in the driver. The driver then manages the secure channel. When the driver passes sample data to the Windows Biometric Service (WBS), the data must be unencrypted. A vendor-supplied engine plug-in within the WBS can set up a secure channel to a web service if necessary.

Security considerations should be transparent to WBF applications.
