+Django Biometrics
+======================
+
+I needed to be able to integrate with some biometric devices for
+authentication, but the template data needed to be stored on a
+server, to enable sharing between locations.
+
+It makes sense to associate a fingerprint template, for instance, with
+a django user. We can then get these templates at the client end, and use
+this information to authenticate there.
+
+Note, this authentication is not for the django application, but just for
+a local application which happens to use the django users table.
+
+To install, add 'biometrics' to your INSTALLED_APPS.
+
+You will then have an attribute on your User class, fingerprint_templates,
+that contains a list of fingerprint templates associated with this user.
+
+A typical use might be to download a list of valid users when the program
+starts, which are then used to authenticate.

Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for ProjectModifiedEvent.java.
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
