Abstract Biometric authentication systems use physical traits of a user in order to give the user access control. Previously the most common and widely method of securing access control is done via knowledge based authentication systems (e.g; Passwords) and Token based Authentication systems (e.g; USB Security key fob). These traditional systems however are not able to meet strict security performance requirements of a number of modern applications such as in devices and home security systems. Biometric systems offer quite a lot more advantages over these traditional methods of authentication, they are more secure and more reliable. In this dissertation, the aim of this dissertation is to evaluate the possibility of implementing a biometric system of authentication to be used for home systems such as desktop computers and home security systems. The issues which will be talked about in this dissertation will be about how secure the biometric system is compared to the traditional methods of authentication which are knowledge based and token based authentication methods. The research will also look into the current trends and patterns into what the public thinks about these biometric systems as a replacement to their current usage of knowledge based and token based methods of authentication. Finally the research will evaluate on whether it is possible to implement the biometrics into daily use or not depending on the data that is received from the research sample.
