Biometric (i.e. Fingerprint) support for VPN access

I am looking for a VPN that will support fingerprints from a USB fingerprint scanner instead of a password.

I would like the VPN to have a zero client.  Go to a web page, login and activate the VPN via java applet, etc.

Does anyone have any experience with this?

If fingerprint is not an option any good experience with RSA type dongles would be a secondary consideration.

Closest we come to that are soft and hard tokens.

Soft tokens are installed on the PC's/laptop's with a pin number as authenticator. We use these for the people who will always use the same machine. We use the hard tokens for the people who roam and may use any machine.
