In this paper, the authors have employed "Face recognition" technique with conventional session based authentication to provide a two layer security. Different features of a human face are used for authentication. Since this scheme uses biological characteristics, this is very difficult to forge. Additionally they will be using conventional session based authentication to provide a two layer security. This method of authentication can be used to grant access to a network, important files and documents. The main objective of this work is to provide a two layer authentication system through biometric (face) and conventional session based password authentication. The encryption key for this authentication will be generated with the combination of the biometric key and session based password.
