Question How do I edit Linux login?

I'm a final year engineering student, doing my final year project.

I have to manipulate the login of linux so that you will need not just a username and password but also a extra element like biometrics or a card that needs to be swiped.

How do I edit linux login and the KDE login? Where can I locate the program in the source code and documentation?

Thank you
