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.
Before you begin:
You need to have access to an existing BWS installation. If you don't have this access, you can register for a trial instance.
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).
