E-infrastructures must support the development of heterogeneous applications for workstation network, for mobile and portable systems and devices. In this context and relating to all collaborative and pervasive computational technology a very important role is played by security and authentication systems, which represent the first step of the whole process. Biometric authentication systems represent a valid alternative to conventional authentication systems providing robust procedures for user authentication. On the other hand, Internet of Things involves a heterogeneous set of interacting devices to enable innovative global and local applications and services for users. In this chapter fingerprint and iris based unimodal and multimodal authentication systems will be described, analyzed and compared. Finally, a prototyped embedded multimodal biometric sensor will be outlined. Software and hardware prototypes have been checked against common and widely used databases.
