  3. Palm Vein Pattern Biometrics Authentication System

Industries:

  • Financial Services

Solution Areas:

  • Security Solutions

Regions:

  • Japan

Challenges:

  • As part of its corporate strategy to strengthen the retail banking business, BTM was planning to issue a new type IC card which clients can use as both a credit and ATM card. In order to enhance the security of the transaction using the new card, BTM also planned to deploy biometrics authentication devices in ATMs and branch offices.

Benefits:

  • High Security: As the vein pattern registration and the authentication process are both done within the IC card, the client’s financial transaction can be highly secured without leak of the personal data.
  • The addition of IC card and authentication function to the existing branch office system developed by Fujitsu, the incumbent SI vendor for the system, enables cost-effectiveness and short lead-time of the deployment.

  • The pattern of blood veins is unique to every individual and will not vary over the course of a person’s lifetime.
  • The fact that this pattern lies under the skin makes it almost impossible for others to read, so palm-vein pattern biometrics are essentially secure method of verification.
  • High authentication precision: Fujitsu’s sampling test showed a result that false acceptance rate was 0.013%.
