    OS X and Biometrics ...
    Am reviewing the posibilities of using biometric authentication to logon locally on MacBooks, instead of using the default username/password combination.

    Have found something on the forum here regarding PKCS11, but that is a dead-end.

    Looked on the net and there is very little info available on what exactly the opportunities are for using biometrics on OS X 10.5.8 and higher.
    With biometrics I mean a fingerprint ( or finger swipe ) on a USB powered fingerprint reader.

    Are there any members who have experience with this or someone can point me in the right direction for more info ?

    Much appreciated.

    Cheers ... McBie
