Introduction

The goal of this project is to provide an easy-to-use authentication system which doesn't require a password. This comes in handy at the barputer (touch-based input), or other services not related to core management. The system should be easy to use, easy to implement, provide fair enough protection, and shouldn't require special tools or hardware.
