currently I think there is no official application but you can do it from google package https://code.google.com/p/pam-face-authentication/wiki/WikiInstallationFromSource

Installation: open your terminal and type as

sudo apt-get install build-essential cmake qt4-qmake libqt4-dev libx11-dev libcv-dev libcvaux-dev libhighgui-dev libpam0g-dev checkinstall 

cd /tmp && wget http://pam-face-authentication.googlecode.com/files/pam-face-authentication-0.3.tar.gz
tar zxf pam-face-authentication-0.3.tar.gz && cd pam-face-authentication-*
mkdir build && cd build
cmake -D CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr ..
make
sudo checkinstall --pkgname=pam-authentication-face-auth 

Check the above link for more information about installation and configuration .
