Advancements in the field of biometric security has delivered the capability of protecting your physical property with DNA.
Biometrics or realistic authentication is gaining attention as a reliable, highly accurate and efficient method of confirming a person’s identity, through the recognition of eyes, faces, fingerprints, voice and signatures.
Human identification technologies have caught the public’s attention with finger print readers or fancy facial recognition. Yet often, biometric securities have crumbled under the pressure testing of malware artists and ethical hackers alike.
However, providers are elevating their technologies by taking their biometric technology skin-deep.
Fujitsu’s PalmSecure™ technology confirms your identity based on vein pattern recognition rather than iris scanners or fingerprint readers. As veins are internal and have a wealth of differentiating features, attempts to forge an identity are extremely difficult, thereby enabling a high level of IT security.
The Science behind PalmSecure
PalmSecure by Fujitsu is a contactless that works by capturing a person’s vein pattern image while radiating it with near-infrared rays. The deoxidised haemoglobin in the palm vein absorbs these rays, thereby reducing the reflection rate and causing the veins to appear as a black pattern.
This vein pattern is then verified against a pre-registered pattern to authenticate the individual.
Vein patterns are unique to individuals and contain detailed characteristics so a template can be formed for each user. The sensor of the palm vein device only recognises the pattern if the deoxidised haemoglobin is actively flowing within the individual’s veins.
NOTE: PalmSecure software also is compatible with the latest Microsoft Windows and Linux operating systems.
Two-Factor Authentication Support
PalmSecure technology can be combined with other authentication methods e.g. cards to improve security. Fujitsu PalmSecure ID Match offers a type of two-factor authentication that integrates PalmSecure technology with ID cards and badges. The solution is based on a compact multi function device, comprised of a touch screen, an embedded processor board, a multi-card reader and Fujitsu’s high security PalmSecure technology for personal identification and verification based on palm vein patterns.
Benefits of PalmSecure ID Match:
– Improving security and protecting cards against theft and fraud
– Easy to use
– Quick verification process
– Housing with active tamper protection
– Multi-card reader are offering universal usage
– The SDK allows flexible solution integration and lowers end application development efforts.
