Using a Biometric token in Drive Encryption

A Biometric token allows fingerprints to authenticate to Drive Encryption instead of using passwords. Currently, Drive Encryption 7.2 supports two Biometric fingerprint readers in specific laptop models.

These Biometric readers are manufactured by UPEK and Validity. For more information about supported laptops, see the Drive Encryption 7.2 supported readers KnowledgeBase article.

Note: Biometric tokens are supported in single user mode only (that is, the user has to register on each system where they want to use fingerprints). The fingerprint template is not distributed across multiple systems.
