    ASP.NET doesn't cater for scanning anything. It operates on the web server. You should look to see if there are any plugins that enable iris scanning in your preferred browser. Then see if the scan result is available to client script in the browser. That way, you can send it to the server for processing.

    Have a look at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FIDO_Alliance 

    On my list but never tried yet. My understanding is that it allows to handle a key on the client side and you don't have to deal yourself with the actual mechanism that allows to "unlock" this key.

    If your device is not compatible you could try with Windows Hello and it should work the same with any other FIDO compatible mechanism...

    Edit: if you want to give this a try start maybe from :

    Hi shsu,

    No, it is impossible to achieve your functions without any external devices.

    The login web page is just in client. If you don't use external devices, where will you identify people's iris and through what?

    You need to use external devices and connect with the server through interface technology to convert the identified content into digital.

    Best Regards,

    Unclear. You mean using a standard built-in webcam ? I doubt about this, more likely you need a specialized device for iris scanning:

    If you want to give this a try it should be quite easy to use Windows Hello instead I expect the API to expose the kind of device for information but the  rest of the code should be the same regardless of what is used on the client side.

    Web cam is a good idea if it allows.

    But If I want it to be added in my web page, who ever using the Login page(using public ip ) for registration must have an IRIS scanning device  with him right?

    No I meant I doubt a standard webcam can work as an iris scanner (as it seems using "near infrared" is needed).

    The point of FIDO is that you should be able to use anything which is FIDO compatible (using a finger print reader, a usb key, a smart card, maybe touching points on an image etc... and apparently it even supports the usual id/password approach).

    If you find no FIDO support for a browser you could skip this. Or if doing things the other way round what do you have already and are you sure this is the best next enhancement ?

    You have a POC here (for ASP.NET Core) : https://www.scottbrady91.com/FIDO/A-FIDO2-Primer-and-Proof-of-Concept-using-ASPNET-Core

    If using Azure AD it seems now in preview: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Azure-Active-Directory-Identity/Announcing-the-public-preview-of-Azure-AD-support-for-FIDO2/ba-p/746362
