|Abstract: ||A network enrollment system will be constructed using mifare card & fingerprint
reader under campus environment. The general password-entered login system cannot
totally preclude unauthorized person to get into the system. Therefore, fingerprint
reader can be used to reveal the personal identity of the user. Another advantage of
fingerprint system is it is dispensability to enter password and convenient to user.
Mifare card (e.g. Student ID Card) and fingerprint readers can be combined to do
two-factor authentication for enrollment (e.g. account registration & attendance
taking). A web-based learning system will be treated as the background and the
network enrollment system will connect to the web-based system for further
This system is based on course information database and personalized data profiles.
Personalized data should be obtained using fingerprint enrollment. Student ID cards
are offered to those students who were registered. Course information database can be
modified in real time. After adding the students into the related course list, the
attendance function can be implemented by using fingerprint or smart card readers.
Attendance can be obtained and sent to central server computer. The course
attendance record can be shown afterward.
To increase the flexibility of hardware implementation, fingerprint module interface is
constructed in wire wrapping configuration. RS-232 is used for data receive and
transmit. Although API is well developed, the communication protocol is formatted.
The functions such as searching speed are improved. The application of mifare card
reader is also be used in this project. Server-client network interface is created for data transfer of fingerprint and smart card reader.
Apart from the attendance function in campus environment, this network enrollment
system can benefit in other areas. For instance, construction site and hospital
prescription centre could make use of this system and will discuss briefly in this
