Seamless human identification and authentication in the information system is a fundamental step towards the transparent interaction between the user and its context proposed in ambient intelligence. Due to this, the IDENTICA project is aimed to the design and implementation of a distributed authentication platform based on biometrics (i.e. voice and facial image) and personal documentation. In this paper, the authors present their work in this project focused on the secure integration of RFID technology in personal documentation in order to provide seamless identity validation. Their actual work status, first results and future directions are describe in detail.
