Palm Vein Pattern Authentication Technology

Fujitsu has developed a contactless palm vein pattern authentication technology that uses vascular patterns as personal identification data. Vein recognition technology is secure because the authentication data exists inside the body and is therefore very difficult to forge. It is also highly accurate — in testing using 140,000 palm profiles of 70,000 individuals, it had a false acceptance rate of less than 0.00008% and a false rejection rate of 0.01%*. Suruga Bank, The Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi, The Hiroshima Bank and The Bank of IKEDA started customer confirmation using palm vein pattern authentication in July 2004, October 2004, April 2005 and June 2005, respectively. Additionally, in response to the “Act for the Protection of Personal Information,” which came into effect in April 2005, an increasing number of financial institutions, including The Nanto Bank, have adopted this technology. Fujitsu has also begun sales of PalmSecure™ products for door security, login authentication and other applications. Business growth will be achieved with these solutions by reducing the size of the palm vein sensor and shortening the authentication time. This paper describes this technology and its expected business expansion.
