    A novel agent based protocol for computer and network security based on multifactor fusion of passwords and facial biometrics for user authentication is proposed in this paper. The protocol uses multiple factors for authentication involving a combination of passwords and face biometric template on the smart card and the user workstation. The biometric match is performed by a module running on the user’s workstation, authenticated by a mobile agent coming from a reliable server. The proposed protocol uses the current cryptographic tokens without requiring any hardware or software changes
