With the device bridge feature, you can redirect biometric devices, specifically fingerprint scanners, that are plugged into a USB port on the Windows client system to virtual desktops, published desktops, and published applications.

To use fingerprint scanner redirection, you must obtain the Smartchip Biometric Authentication System (BAS) third-party software and install it on both the Windows client system and on the Horizon Agent system. You must also install the Device Bridge BAS Plugin feature during Horizon Agent installation.

For installation instructions and complete system requirements, see "Configuring Fingerprint Scanner Redirection" in the Configuring Remote Desktop Features in Horizon 7 document for Horizon 7 version 7.4 or later.
