Access the BioID Web Service with SOAP API
The BioID Web Service (BWS) has been designed using a service-oriented architecture (SOA) and is implemented as a Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) service using the SOAP protocol, which allows platform-independent implementation on the customer's side. No installation on on-premise systems is needed since all access to BWS is done remotely over standard ports.

The access to the service instances is restricted with standard X.509 client certificates. You can download this certificate from the BWS Portal.
The service-, operation- and data-contracts of the current version of BWS are available online as a single WSDL metadata document. (XML file).
