BioStore

Identity Management

with
Papercut MF Pri
nt and Copy Release

What is it?


BioStore is a biometric system used to identify a person’s identity via (in our case) fingerprint.


BioStore

uses this information to create a unique id number associated with an individual and this
number can be used to authenticate with a device. The advantage being that there is no media
needed (id card).


The
BioStore

solution for print and copy release is f
ully compatible with Papercut MF which allow
users to submit print jobs to a virtual queue and then release from their desired MFP.


A Biostore ID Point terminal, with embedded card and biometric reader, is connected via USB to a
MFP running the Papercut e
mbedded application and is also connected to the network via a LAN
port.


How it works
:


Biometric printing technology offers a unique, simple and secure method of identification. Using a
complex algorithmic system, the fingerprint image is converted to

a complex number string,
removing the need to store any images so providing security and peace of mind for users. The held
data cannot be used to recreate a fingerprint or be used in any forensic way.



BioStore

uses this information to create a unique id number associated with an individual and this
number can be used to authenticate with a device. The
identification

method for each user is set in
Biostore ID Manager console. The user can then simply confirm the
ir
identity at

their chosen MFP by
placing their finger on the biometric scanner of the ID Point terminal or alternatively, by entering a
PIN or swiping a card. The user’s
encrypted

identification template is then compared and
identified

and Biostores
com
municates

the
user’s

credentials

t
o the print server. The print server then logs
the user into the chosen MFP where they can print, copy or scan based upon the rules set in
Papercut MF.


How Biometric’s and Papercut work?


Users scan their fingerprint on

the biometric scanner on the IDPoint terminal which is connected to
the MFP.

The

fingerprint information is then sent via the
network

to the biometric software running
on a server which is then looked up in the biometric database and verified as a user on

the network.


Each verified user has a unique ID number
associated

with their account which is sent through the
network

back to the IDPoint terminal which
in turn

sends it via a USB connection to the MFP. If the
ID number matches stored in Papercut the u
ser is then logged into the embedded software.





Key features



Add on to new or existing Papercut installations



Integration with Papercut embedded software



Single data store
-

users enrol only once



No fingerprint images stored


Benefits:


Increased
Security

& Confidentiality



documents are not produced until the document
owner collects them. Use of biometrics adds a further level of security ensuring that users
are positively identified and are not using someone else’s card or PIN


Flexibil
ity & Efficiency



the solution makes it easy to log on and use MFPs


Control



the organisation can dictate what is allowed/disallowed, for example enforcing
mono and duplex printing for groups of users, allocating printer ‘credits’ or balances and
‘costs
per copy’, re
-
routing large jobs to Reprographics and deleting uncollected jobs after
24 hours


Cost Saving & Environmental Benefit



employing various levels of control can reduce total
document production by a significant percentage, making the service bo
th cheaper and
more environmentally friendly.


Increased Productivity


Compliance with regulations



no fingerprint images stored



Target markets

Scalable, network
-
based print management software for: Education, Public Sector, Corporate

Education



BioStore and Papercut are strong within the education sector as schools have
started to adopt this biometric technology.



Reduces bullying


users do not carry cards



Utilising the biometric authentication technology helps education establishments
identify

a user in the safest way through the use of fingerprint technology.



Secondly, by incorporating biometric technology with MFP’s, educational
establishments create a more secure environment where they are able to oversee their document
workflows more stri
ctly, manage print costs and ensure that only vital documents are printed.




Biostore System Architecture


The basic Biostore infrastructure consists of a Primary server connecting to a biometric
database.
Biostore’s management console (ID Manager) is t
hen used to enrol a user’s
biometric’s, card details or PIN credentials into the system.
