Fingerprint scanner in a web application


I am developing a web application which allows users to:

1) Enroll fingerprints using an FS88 scanner which will be stored in a database.
2) Allow users to authenticate by using the FS88 (If they use their fingerprints to authenticate, their fingerprints will be compared to the data in the db).

Since I am pretty new to all this, can someone give me a brief guide on how to go around doing this?

Really cannot be done via a web application since you have to launch a process on the users machine and browsers sandbox calls and only know html and css.  You can write an application that communicates with a central server using rest/soap protocols though.

cannot be done in the browser without some external coding
