Authentication based on biometric provides various advantages in ATMs (Automated Teller Machine) systems. The weakness of existing authentication scheme in ATM is the usage of PIN (Personal Identification Number) numbers as password. Because PIN numbers are easily traceable and misused. In order to achieve security and to overcome these illegal activities, our proposed system is developed to provide better security to the ATMs. Here, the PIN numbers are replaced with biometric security. The main objective of the work is to eliminate the use of ATM cards completely and to ensure better security. In this proposal, we provide the idea of using Aadhaar number as user ID and fingerprint as password. After biometric verification, the user will be allowed to proceed with the transaction. In case of three successive wrong attempts, the account will be blocked.
