This article describes a complete original biometric system named Tactim based on the skin reaction coupled with security concepts. Even if the experiments showed that there is much work left, our approach has many advantages. Security and biometry are strongly linked together, the biometric features are original and strongly depend of the user’s will, it can be easily interfaced to existing systems, so we finally propose a way to integrate this system in a Service Oriented Architecture and analyze its advantages and drawbacks.
