In this contribution, we introduce an application that allows a mobile phone to be used as a biometric-capture device for secure access to the cloud. In this application, the biometric capture and recognition are performed during a standard web session, using JQuery, a new mobile web framework which provides the technology needed to build web pages that act more like mobile applications rather than traditional web pages. The mobile user obtains service catalog through an interface developed for the Android system. We have used Hadoop, an open source cloud computing environment, to establish the connection between mobile user and server in the cloud via Ethernet, WiFi or 3G.
