A BMS file is an encrypted file created by the BIOWRAP System. It may contain any time of data and can be transmitted in any form, such as via email or a flash drive.

Each BMS file is locked using a specific authentication method. Authentication options include biometric validation, x509 PKI certificate verification, and a BIOWRAP username and password combination.

BMS files can be opened with the free BIOWRAP Reader application or via BIOWRAP website. However, you can only view the contents of a BMS file if complete the necessary authentication steps.
