I have to make a Java Project with functionality of authenticating the user with his/her face recognition.

Like at the login time their will be an option to take Picture from webcam and then verify it using image stored previously.

So I have to basically compare two images with one another which seems to be quite complex task.

Can anybody provide some insights or some references that can help.

Why are you committing to a language before you know what technologies are available? I would think it would make more sense to see which technologies support something like this, and then choose the best one for your needs.

This is a very complex task, techniques are usually described in academic papers. I think you're best off using third party libraries. Facebook even bought an entire company that specialized in facial recognition.

You should never use facial recognition for authentication purposes though. It's easily fooled unless you manage to write an extremely sophisticated algorithm that requires three dimensional movement.
