Web applications store trustworthy information and can be accessed online through wired or wireless network. Authentication is one of the major challenges to access these web applications. With varying level of sensitive data stored in web application, the concept of level of authentication can be introduced using biometric traits. This paper proposes biometric-based multi-modal authentication system with four levels of securities. Level 1 uses user name and password only; Level 2 uses fingerprint with user name and password; Level 3 uses fingerprint and face with user name and password; Level 4 uses fingerprint, face and iris with user name and password.
