Abstract: Authenticating the user based on behavior based biometrics is more reliable than the more traditional means of password authentication .Since Biometric identification is unique and slow intrusive .Biometric systems provide the solution to ensure that the rendered services are accessed only by a legitimate user and no one else. Biometric systems identify users based on behavioral or physiological characteristics. The advantages of such systems over traditional authentication methods, such as passwords and IDs, are well known; hence, biometric systems are gradually gaining ground in terms of usage. As security is the main concern in using cloud computing fused biometric authentication technique which can be used as single sign on so that the services can be more secure and reliable ,and that biometric authentication is provided as a service by a cloud provider.
