This paper describes a recent trial of a biometric identity verification system. The prototype system developed provided a means of automatically issuing pass cards providing access to a major site. The paper begins with the description of a practical problem — access control to a major industrial site, and the potential benefits a biometric technique might offer. This is followed with a description of a prototype access control system, and a review of dynamic signature verification as a biometric technique. Results from the trial are presented, followed by an analysis of the results. The paper concludes by summarising the findings and describing possible ways forward.
