Increasing necessity of e-mail, Internet resources etc, offers serious security concerns. Biometrics is replacing passwords.
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.
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,
First the individual places his PALM on the sensor, thus the sensor takes the “PALM VEIN IMAGE” and compares it with the pre-registered one with the help of INFRA RED RAYS.If there is a match then access is allowed, if not access is denied. This system is not at all dangerous. A near infrared ray is a component of sunlight, whose effect is much less than walking in sunlight.
No two people in the wor ld share a palm vein pattern - even those of identical twins will differ.Even if you have registered your profile as a child, the image will still be valid as veins are established in utero (before birth).This technology system had a false rejection rate of 0.01% (i.e., only one out of 10,000 scans were incorrect denials for access)
Palm vein technology
Currently, passwords, Personal Identification Numbers or identification cards are used for personal identification.In biometric authentication, an account holder’s body characteristics or behaviors are registered in a database and then compared with others who may try to access that account.
A key advantage of biometric authenticationis that biometric data is based on physicalcharacteristics that stay constant throughoutone’s lifetime and are difficult (some more thanothers) to fake or change. Biometric identification can provideextremely accurate, secured access toinformation; fingerprints, palm vein and irisscans produce absolutely unique data sets(when done properly).
fingerprints, faces, voice prints and palm veins.Among these, because of its high accuracy, contact lesspalm vein authentication technology is beingincorporated
In this technology ONE’S PALM is used as the “PASSWORD” for verification. The veins present in the palm of the individual are scanned & verified thus providing the access.Palm vein authentication has a high level of authentication accuracy due to the uniqueness and complexity of vein patterns of the palm.
Unlike the skin, through which near-infrared light passes, deoxygenated hemoglobin in the blood flowing through the veins absorbs near-infrared rays, causing it to be visible as black regions to the scanner. Arteries and capillaries, whose blood contains oxygenated hemoglobin, which does not absorb near-infrared light, are invisible to the sensor, hence we chosen “VEINS”.
An individuals palm vein image is converted by algorithms into data points, which is then compressed, encrypted, and stored by the software person when ever access it, the data is compared with stored one, thus verification is done.Fujitsu research is the one main company which has come up with first basis of “ PALM VEIN TECHNOLOGY”
On the basis of testing the technology on more than 70,000 individuals , Fujitsu declared that the new system had a false rejection rate of 0.01%. In addition the devices ability to perform personal authentication was verified using the following: 1. Data from people ranging from 6 to 85 years old including people in various occupations. 2. Data about foreigners living in Japan in accordance with the world demographics released by the united nations.
The completely contactless feature of this Device makes it suitable for use where high levels of hygiene are required. It also eliminates any hesitation people might have about coming into contact with something that other people have already touched. In addition to being contactless and thereby hygienic and user-friendly in that the user does not need to physically touch a surface and is free of such hygiene concerns.
