Hello! I am a final year student at the University of Mauritius and I am currently working on a project related to facial recognition for computer security.
My idea of the project is to build a software to replace the traditional Windows XP password logon screen by one requesting a biometrics(face detection) authentication.
While reading some papers about related work, I found out that such systems are usually coded in Visual Basic or Matlab. I am already familiar with VB; and am willing to learn any other language which would enable me to develop the software.
But I cannot understand how i am supposed to replace the Windows logon screen by the new software. Can anyone please tell me about the different components/development kits I will be needing and the most appopriate language to build this type of software?

I hope you realize that you need 3D image correlation for that. This means you need two cameras ... entering password or fingerprint is much more faster than what you are trying.
2D face recognition can be easily beaten by a picture of the person.
