FUJITSU FRONTECH have newly developed authentication software in order for its palm vein authentication devices - "FUJITSU Biometric Authentication PalmSecure F Series" (hereon referred to as "PalmSecure F Series") - to comply with the standards for FIDO UAF(*1) and FIDO2(*2) – thus, "PalmSecure F Series" now conforms to the international standards of FIDO. And, from July of this year, "PalmSecure F Series" with the authentication software was added to Fujitsu Limited's "Online Biometric Authentication Service"(*3) as "Addition of Authentication Function (Palm Vein)", to enable people to use the world's first ever FIDO that uses vein patterns.
This enables users to utilize the highly reliable palm vein authentication features of "PalmSecure F Series" as a FIDO-compatible device. It also frees them from typing passwords, the worry of forgetting and changing them on a regular basis. People can use internet online services that combine convenience and safety in the Windows environment.
Furthermore, this service offers "PalmSecure F Series" as BaaS (*4) offering with user-based billing, allowing customers to change flexibly the number of users as needed and reduce initial costs.
FUJITSU FRONTECH will now go on to continue to contribute to the realization of a safe, secure society through "PalmSecure F Series", our palm vein authentication device series.
