•WHAT IS PALM VEIN TECHNOLOGY?
•HOW DOES THE PALM VEIN RECOGNITION
•In the present network society, where individuals can easily access
their information any time and anywhere.
•People are also faced with the risk that others can easily access the
same information anytime and anywhere.
•Currently, passwords, identification cards are used for personal
•However, cards can be stolen, and passwords and numbers can be
guessed or forgotten.

WHAT IS PALM VEIN TECHNOLOGY???
• Palm vein technologies are one of the technologies which is
• Palm vein authentication works by comparing the pattern of veins
in the palm of a person being authenticated with a pattern stored
in a database.
• In this technology ONE’S PALM is used as
the “PASSWORD” for verification
• The venis present in the palm of the
individual are scanned and verified thus
providing the access
Working of palm vein recognization system
Simply hold your palm a few centimeters over the scanner.
Sensor scans vein patterns.
Vein pattern along with personal details are stored in database.
What happens if the registered palm gets damaged?
• There may be a chance that the palm we had registered may
get damaged then we cannot use this technology.
• So during the time of registration we take the veins of both the
hands so that if one gets damaged we can access through the
• When we apply this method we can maintain complete privacy .
•Vein patterns are not easily manipulated, observed, damaged or
•Palm veins are most complex & present inside the superficial skin.
So impossible to copy the palm veins.
•It is highly secure and accurate.
•This technology is also fast and easy to install.
•There are numerous factors that can affect the quality of the
•For example body temperature, heat radiation, humidity, nearness
of vein to surface, camera,calibration, humidity and focus.
•It is relatively expensive.
• Palm vein pattern recognition is a convenient
and easy to use biometric technology with high security and
• Surely this technology will bring a revolution in the field of
science and technology in the near future.
