INTRODUTION 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 hemoglobin, 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, OPERATION PRINCIPLE REASONS BEHIND FUJITSU’S CONTACT-LESS PALM VEIN AUTHENTICATION INITIATIVE 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 Solutions Palm vein authentication offers a number of salient advantages versus other biometric security methods. These advantages can be grouped into two categories: 1) security and accuracy, 2) performance and usability. Merits of Palm Vein Key Features and Benefits Accuracy and Reliability Security Cost-Effective Contact less Usability Using Palm Guard in Security Applications 1. Banking 2. ATMs 3. Internal branch security 4. Remote banking 5. Smart Card E-Passport 6. Logical Access to Computerized Systems (Single Sign-On) 7. Walk-in customers 8. Hospitals and Healthcare Facilities Applications in education Benefits 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 imaging devices. 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. Conclusion 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 methods. Palm vein authentication offers a number of salient advantages versus other biometric security methods in terms of security, accuracy, performance and usability Palm vein authentication severely reduces the risk of security breaches because the veins are deep within the hand and arranged in very complicated, hard-to-reproduce patterns.
