I'm not aware of anyone using a fingerprint reader yet in ROS. You will probably need to write a driver, and I suggest making a message to contain the fingerprint information to make communication and storage easier.

(Note: ROS does not use any authentication so it is not recommended for doing anything requiring security.)
