I am looking into using fingerprint authentication on my machine and I 
have an APC BioPod scanner (usb) to work with. When I plug the scanner 
into the usb port, dmesg shows the following

ugen1: vendor 0x08ff Fingerprint Sensor, rev 1.10/0.00, addr 4

Vendor 0x08ff points to AUTHENTEC

The following directories are created

Does anyone know of software that can be used to work with this 
fingerprint scanner on freeBSD (6.1)? Or even if it is possible to just 
read the raw data from the stream? Thanks in advance.
