I have a requirement of developing an application based on c#. I want to implement fingerprint authentication into it. I have a USB fingerprint reader with me. If anyone has knowledge on it please share

What I have tried:

I am new to getting data from a USB device so just googled about it and didnt find any solutions

The problem you're going to have is getting your javascript code to access your fingerprint reader. Ideally you need to use one that has a web plug in that allows it to be accessed via js. You probably then have a ton of other security problems to think about which is why no-one does this.

While easier in Android ad iOS, Web Authentication is relatively new (as in months).

No experience with this. The issues I see are going to be client side; young technology with few code repositories and few people with the hardware
