Fujitsu PalmSecure Puts Your Identity Back in Your Hands

Fujitsu launches innovative authentication solutions based on its PalmSecure technology.

March 05, 2013 Fujitsu today announces the general availability of innovative authentication solutions based on its PalmSecure technology, which uses individuals’ unique palm vein patterns to combat identity fraud. With Fujitsu PalmSecure, a contactless scan of the palm vein pattern of a user’s hand is enough to confirm their identity, using biometrics that are more secure, harder to defraud and easier to use than traditional authentication methods, such as Chip & PIN. Fujitsu PalmSecure is introduced at CeBIT taking place in Hanover, Germany.

Fraudulent use of electronic authentication technology such as Chip & PIN is a multi-million dollar problem for banks and Government agencies worldwide. By adopting Fujitsu PalmSecure, which reads an individual’s unique pattern of oxygen-depleted veins on the palm of hand, users can be authenticated in seconds, simply by holding their hand over a sensor.

Fujitsu PalmSecure is a robust and massively scalable enterprise solution that is easily adapted to a wide variety of applications in vertical industries. Based on its heritage in developing ICT infrastructures, combined with the strength of its global services organization, Fujitsu is already in discussions with organizations considering the introduction of PalmSecure for industries ranging from aviation – where it could be used to replace boarding cards – to entertainment and retail.1 Client software and technical support services are also included in each solution.

UniCredit Papillon – to pay, just reach out your hand
Fujitsu PalmSecure enables people to return to a time when their hand is their bond: there is no credit card or key, no PIN number to remember, no fingerprints and no need for complicated and expensive iris scanning. Simply a swipe of the hand proves identity beyond reasonable doubt. UniCredit is testing the roll-out of its Papillon payment system, based on Fujitsu PalmSecure technology.

In December 2012, the major European commercial banking group UniCredit carried out the first of a series of proof-of-concept tests of its Papillon payment system which is based on Fujitsu PalmSecure technology. Fujitsu provided the sensor which captures the payer’s unique vein pattern data, a Solution Development Kit enabling UniCredit to independently develop its bespoke application and solution, plus project support. UniCredit plans to gradually introduce Papillon, primarily as a mobile payment mechanism and to complement other payment methods.
