Sorry this didn’t help. What cards did you test? Unfortunately Dell seems to have very little information available on their web pages, so I had to start digging myself. For example given the number: To find out more, including how to control cookies, see here: What cards does it support?

security device BCM 5880

In reply to GilbertoMagpantay’s post on May 2, Should just work because it’s certified by Canonical Enterprise Services: There was no visual identification that it wanted admin rights as it also disabled the normal password GUI prompt, only when the fingerprint failed would it make the password available for typing.

On a side note: I have a Dell Latitude E running Ubuntu What cards did you test? GilbertoMagpantay Replied on May 2, Create a free website or blog at WordPress.

The security application of Broadcom BCM combines platform recognition, personal recognution, data protection, and other functions on a single chip processor. What is the exact issue you are facing with BCM device? This chipset also contains a secuity processor, contacted smartcard secuity, fingerprint reader support, TPM v1.

I have had my fingerprint reader not the broadcom enabled, however I didn’t like it much. It worked though, but in some situations it would remove the GUI prompt for the password, so in those instances you would just have to know that it wanted the fingerprint.


Hi Gilberto, As I see from the following link from the dell website, there are no Windows 8 drivers available.

The front is all white. Finally I found the solution! Format and Facility Site Code explained: I don’t have personal experience with that fingerprint-reader. I have removed the external serial numbers where they appear.

I would guess the reader is format agnostic. I would suggest you to contact dell support to see if there are any Windows 8 compatible drivers. Did everything work as expected?

Latest version as of is v1. In the last section of this document: This reader is located under the right palm rest, and is also available on select Latitude E-series. What you may edvice to have applications be able to use it is the “pkcs11” packages for your distro to have the security protocol coupling in place for this kind of authentication.

The Broadcom BCM performs critical functions on the chip and is isolated from the main microprocessor and operating system so it can fully store and process sensitive information such as passwords and unique hardware identifiers. defice

This approach to handle sensitive data makes the PC system more secure and allows it to be centrally managed and easily accessible to system administrators. It also puts a lot of today’s application functions such as one-time password OTPfingerprint reader, smart card, and non-contact reader, etc.

Do you get any error message? Using the ATR here is just a simple way to check that the reader at least can detect the contactless card.

Describe the issue the securify you can. GilbertoMagpantay Created on April 23, The high level of integration of the BCM enables a single-chip design to deliver a significantly more powerful and cost-effective solution for these types of applications and integrates Broadcom’s on-chip secure “vault” with audio and video, along with a memory controller, a smart card interface, and many communication ports.
