Build biometrics with BioID

BWS Reference

Here you can find the developer documentation for integrating our APIs with REST or SOAP protocol. Among others, you will find our APIs for Upload, Enrollment and Verification as well as sample code and explanations.

BWS PowerShell Cmdlets

The BWS Powershell Commandlets can be used to test a BWS instance from a client system and to use the service via scripting. The commandlets correspond to the SOAP API calls of the BioID Web Service.

Release Notes

Here you can find our latest releases including new functionalities and solved issues. Information on new APIs as well as technological development can be found.

App Developer Guide

This documentation includes information for integrating the BioID Authenticator App directly into your App. Additionally, explanations are given for generating Inter-App-Communication between your App and the BioID App. Both Android and iOS are supported.

BioIDSvc

If you want to run BWS on-premise or on your own servers, you can find information on system requirements and installation here. The BioIDSvc is a version of the BioID Web Service (BWS), where the Azure WorkerRole is replaced by a Microsoft Windows service with an identical implementation of the BWS APIs. 

BWS Management

For the management of all BioID Web Service (BWS) installations, a centralized BWS Management API is used together with a uniform control interface, the BWS Portal. Installation administrators as well as client developers will find relevant information on how to install and manage BWS.
