Award-winning authentication system verifies an individual’s identity by recognizing the pattern of blood veins in the palm.

The Fujitsu PalmSecure is a palm-vein based authentication system that utilizes the latest in biometric security technology. Answering a worldwide need from governments to the private sector, this contactless device offers an easy-touse, hygienic solution for verifying identity.

With the introduction of its next generation product, the Fujitsu PalmSecure now boasts a dramatically faster authentication rate, with verification time reduced to about half the time of the original model. In addition, the new sensor features a more compact form factor at roughly one-fourth the size of its predecessor, which will provide greater flexibility and ease of implementation in a variety of applications.

The Fujitsu PalmSecure works by capturing a person’s vein pattern image while radiating it with near-infrared rays. The deoxidized hemoglobin 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 preregistered pattern to authenticate the individual.

As veins are internal in the body and have a wealth of differentiating features, attempts to forge an identity are extremely difficult, thereby enabling a high level of security. Additionally, the sensor of the palm vein device can only recognize the pattern if the deoxidized hemoglobin is actively flowing within the individual’s veins.

The opportunities to implement PalmSecure span a wide range of vertical markets, including security, financial/banking, healthcare, commercial enterprises and educational facilities. Applications for the device include physical admission into secured areas; log-in to PCs or server systems; access to POS, ATMs or kiosks; positive ID control; and other industry-specific applications.

With the Fujitsu PalmSecure and with considerable experience in image processing and recognition technology, Fujitsu expects to be a leader in providing solutions for the biometric security industry.
