The Basis of Palm Vein Technology
The still image captured by the camera, which photographs in the near-infrared
range, appears as a Palm Vein Technology - highly secure black network, reflecting
which flashes a near infrared ray on the palm. Unlike the skin, through which near
infrared light passes, deoxygenated hemoglobin in the blood flowing through the
veins absorbs near infrared rays
The near-infrared rays in the palm vein scanner have no effect on the body
when scanning. Arteries and capillaries, whose blood contains oxygenated
each time a person logs in attempting to gain access by a palm scan to a
particular bank account or secured entryway, etc., the newly captured image is
likewise processed and compared to the registered one or to the bank of stored
files for verification,

BIOMETRIC AUTHENTICATION SOLUTIONS– Pros and Cons
A key advantage of biometric authentication is that biometric data is based on
physical characteristics that stay constant throughout one’s lifetime and are
difficult (some more than others) to fake or change.
. Biometric identification can provide extremely accurate, secured access to
information; fingerprints, palm vein and iris scans produce absolutely unique data
sets (when done properly).
without resorting to documents that may be stolen, lost or altered. It is not easy
to determine which method of biometric data gathering and reading does the "best"
job of ensuring secure authentication.
the question is which biometric solution is most appropriate for a given
application. Often, the optimal solution utilizes a multi-layered approach, combining
biometrics with passwords, PINs and smart cards.
Advantages over Other Biometric Authentication
Palm vein authentication offers a number of
salient advantages versus other biometric security
methods. These advantages can be grouped into two
1) security and accuracy,
2) performance and usability.

7. Walk-in customers
8. Hospitals and Healthcare Facilities
Applications in education
Currently it's possible for someone to overhear or see sensitive
personal information, or use someone else's Social Security number or
health insurance card to receive services.
It can also be time-consuming to check in at a hospital, filling out
paperwork and waiting for staff to enter the information into a computer
before a patient receives care.
Vein Pattern Advantages and Disadvantages
The human vascular structure is individually distinct.
Identical twins have different and distinct vascular patterns.
Vein patterns are not easily spoofed, observed, damaged,
obscured or changed.
Vein pattern recognition requires simple low resolution
The technology is reliable in that is shows little performance
degradation in harsh environments, such as mines,
manufacturing and construction sites as well as heavy traffic
areas such as schools, military bases and dormitories.
The ease with which traditional authentication systems can be
compromised, together with the rapid growth in identity theft and increasing
privacy concerns have resulted in a surge in demand for stronger authentication
Palm vein authentication offers a number of salient advantages versus
other biometric security methods in terms of security, accuracy, performance
Palm vein authentication severely reduces the risk of security breaches
because the veins are deep within the hand and arranged in very complicated,
