Hi Felix,

   I will work in a project where phisical security will be based on
   biometrics, in fact only will be based on fingerprints biometric.

   How secure are fingerprints?, what biometric are more secure?
   (voice, eye, ??? what else).

I would not trust most biometric access-control products that are
available yet. If you can read german (or you know somebody who can)
there was a very interessting test made by german computer-magazine
"c't". They tested different biometric products and all failed, e.g. are
very easy to fool.

The article is at: http://www.heise.de/ct/02/11/114/default.shtml

But it's only available in german.
