PALM | PALM VEIN
Principles of palm vein biometrics
The pattern of blood veins is unique to every individual, even among identical twins. Palms have a broad and complicated vascular pattern and thus contain a wealth of differentiating features for personal identification. Furthermore, it will not change during the person's lifetime.
It is a very secure method of authentication because this blood vein pattern lies under the skin. This makes it almost impossible for others to read or copy.
How palm vein biometrics works.
An individual's vein pattern image is captured by radiating his/her hand with near- infrared rays. The reflection method illuminates the palm using an infrared ray and
captures the light given off by the region after diffusion through the palm.
The deoxidized hemoglobin in the vein vessels absorbs the infrared ray, 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.
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. In addition, the sensor of the palm vein device can only recognize the pattern if the deoxidized hemoglobin is actively flowing within the individual's veins.
This system is not dangerous, a near infrared is a component of sunlight: there is no more exposure when scanning the hand than by walking outside in the sun.
Because of its contactless feature, it is very hygienic and stress free for even public use.
Easy to Use
Just hold your palm over the device, it captures your vein pattern instantly.
