Hello Experts,

we are moving into a new domain, win2016, in a few months and am exploring the option of 2 factor biometric for AD sign-on. We are evaluating authlite with yubikeys however we were thinking to use a biometric mouse or peripheral so as to not have to be buying replacement yubikeys.  This is for a single on premises only domain with less than 100 authenticated users.

Also Is there a biometric solution that will credential the user at the bios startup post before authenticating into the domain?

regards
peter

Don't understand exactly what you mean. I have a yubikey that I use daily and it is at least 8 years old

because we have around 90 employees, we are thinking of using some kind of biometric control vs the usb token solely because employees may lose the tokens regularly.

Those peripherals are expensive and more likely to break. The cheap ones do not do the live-finger checking and can be easily fooled.
I would get them to sign for keys just like they would for access cards.
Have a few spare on hand and charge for replacement.
