Abstract This final project report analyzes, specifies, designs, implements, and tests a remote user authentication system using embedded systems and a web service. The different choices made at each step are documented. User authentication systems involving only a chip card or a chip card and a PIN are subject to the possible sharing of card and PIN between multiple persons, which will allow multiple persons to be able to authenticate as a single person. The system proposed and implemented herein is not subject to this through a combination of fingerprints and chip card as a means to authenticate. Since a fingerprint cannot be easily shared like a PIN. This method provides a more secure verification of the actual presence of the authorized person.
