Bug#460495: ITP: pam-fprint -- PAM module allowing authentication via fprint

Package: wnpp
Owner: Emfox Zhou <EmfoxZhou@gmail.com>
Severity: wishlist

* Package name    : pam-fprint
  Version         : 0.2

  Description     : PAM module allowing authentication via fprint

The fprint project aims to support for consumer fingerprint reader devices.

Previously, Linux support for such devices has been scattered amongst different
projects (many incomplete) and inconsistent in that application developers
would have to implement support for each type of fingerprint reader separately.
We're trying to change that by providing a central system to support all the
fingerprint readers we can get our hands on.

pam_fprint is a PAM module which uses libfprint's fingerprint verification
functionality to implement a fingerprint-based login system.
