I'm working on a project.. a security type lock using a fingerprint scanner..

I'm new to microcontrollers and currently studying about them, is there any way to create a storage or database for "Fingerprints" and atleast "4-6 combination password" using PIC18F84A.. I was thinking of using a USB Flash drive.

Can anyone give me tips or ideas on where I should start? :-|
