This work presents a new approach of security of electronic documents. This approach has the advantage of integrating several hybrid technologies as the biometrics which is based on the recognition of the digital fingerprints, coding PDF417, the techniques of encoding, and the electronic signature of documents. This approach uses all the techniques previously illustrated to reinforce the security of signature and consequently the warranty of authentication of the signatory. The authentication is a task requested by several fields to ensure security and the iniquity of information.

In our approach we chose the use of the techniques of recognition of digital fingerprints in order to ensure a high level of security and confidentiality. With this intention we prepared a database containing a list of digital fingerprints for a set of people.

The classification was made with the Multi-Layer Perceptron (MLP) neural network.
