    The facility of Online Banking is not a new concept. In fact, internet banking was first introduced in the UK as early as 1997 (BBC, 2009). And with the advances in technology and the constant growth in internet use, it has continued to develop ever since. However, even 18 years since its inception, it is still common to hear news stories about Online Banking security breaches and attacks on a fairly regular basis.
    Additionally, past experiences with several Online Banking websites have proven to be increasingly frustrating as the time it takes to complete the logging in process appears to be taking longer, and longer, and longer, and longer……
    These reasons have proven to be the motivation and inspiration for the birth of this project, which seeks to explore whether the security and the convenience of Online Banking authentication systems are at a sufficient standard. Furthermore, the project investigates the effectiveness and the possibility of the biometric technology improving these vital authentication characteristics.
