Biometric sensor metadata is abstracted in libfido2 by the fido_bio_info_t type.
The functions described in this page allow a fido_bio_info_t type to be allocated, deallocated, and inspected. For device operations on fido_bio_info_t, please refer to fido_bio_dev_get_info(3).
The fido_bio_info_new() function returns a pointer to a newly allocated, empty fido_bio_info_t type. If memory cannot be allocated, NULL is returned.
The fido_bio_info_free() function releases the memory backing *info_p, where *info_p must have been previously allocated by fido_bio_info_new(). On return, *info_p is set to NULL. Either info_p or *info_p may be NULL, in which case fido_bio_info_free() is a NOP.
The fido_bio_info_type() function returns the fingerprint sensor type, which is 1 for touch sensors, and 2 for swipe sensors.
The fido_bio_info_max_samples() function returns the maximum number of successful samples required for enrollment.
