Biometric access systems for online website authentication?

I am looking for good turnkey solutions (off the shelf) for managing
online access to a group of websites run by us. We are a large
organization and very global, but have websites with very targeted

Each of these audience members needs to be uniquely identified. Our
current system requires them to sign up to our club, based on age,
passport copies, credit card number etc.

It is a very rigid system. However, at the end of it, we just give them
a username and password, which can of course be shared around and
anyone can login with that information.

So we are looking for some system that allows us to uniquely identify a
user. We don't mind giving out small, cheap hardware. We considered
RSA's SecurID but that's just a device that produces time-stamped
numbers, and this small device can be shared around with friends, just
like username and password.

Would anyone know of, or have had experience with, any biometric
solution or something of that nature that can allow us to UNIQUELY
identify individuals?

Many thanks,

That one is a tough one. However you should be able to use Biometrics
with SafeWord from The issue that I see here
is how are you going to get all your users BIO Marks into a database?

I have seen Safeword used in conjunction with Smartcards and PKI
Digital Certs, and Windows DC with the scheme that is installed with
the Safeword software.

Just my .02 Cents
