Face and Fingerprint identifications are one of the basic forms of person's identification and they are well known for universality. They remain efficient and acceptable biometric trait in the society and hybrid fusion of these traits will increase a performance of one's system and also accuracy therefore ,this paper gives an idea about fusion of primary and secondary biometric information providing two levels of security which can be used in the field of criminal identification and prison security based application the most simple and yet strong fusion rules are used to combine these above data such that correct identification of person is authenticated. This paper also gives information on how system reliability can be increased.
