    For #1, yes their are samples in the kinect sdk for tracking the face but you will have to implement the recognition system or you can try modifying it into the kinecttoolbox code (not for sure if it does face tracking yet): http://kinecttoolbox.codeplex.com/. For #2, kinects microphone shows up in windows as a normal microphone so just get the data from it and feed it into an third party security application that does voice authenication (I do not think this has changed but I thought I still saw a kinect microphone or something similar in devices and printers when my kinect is plugged in).
