Is there any open-source software available to read fingerprint from fingerprint scanner and give a unique number ?

I need this for another software I am building where I need to store user's fingerprint in a database.

I use Linux. So I am searching for any of these kind which runs on Linux.

Thank you.


There has been considerable discussion of doing this with Open CV on the OpenCV forum, there is an example in a book called Open CV 3 Blueprints and the associated C++ source code can be found here.

You can also find C# & Java implementations here.
