This paper describes an automated fingerprint authentication system fusing two different technologies viz. embedded and biometrics accessible to the persons who are authorized by the officials using bio-metric identification of finger print. The system operates in both online and offline mode. The fingerprint reader is an optical reader that captures the difference between valleys and ridges. System also employs Power over Ethernet. The goal of this project is to develop a complete system for fingerprint identification. For experimentation LM3S6965 micro-controller is interfaced with SFM3250-OP fingerprint scanner and LCD touch screen.
