Leading-edge authentication system verifies an individual’s identity by recognizing the pattern of blood veins in the palm.
Vein patterns are unique to individuals and contain detailed characteristics for formulation of algorithm template.
Contactless authentication is hygienic and non-invasive, thus promoting high-level of user acceptance.
Advanced authentication algorithm produces high level of accuracy and application versatility.
Extremely difficult to forge, thereby enabling a high level of security.
Technology based on more than two decades of Fujitsu image recognition experience.
What is Fujitsu PalmSecure™?
The palm vein device by Fujitsu is an authentication system that utilizes the latest in biometric security technology. Answering a worldwide need from governments to the private sector, this contactless device offers an easy-touse, hygienic solution for verifying identity. The new palm vein device by Fujitsu works by capturing a person's vein pattern image while radiating it with near-infrared rays. The deoxidized hemoglobin in the palm vein absorbs these rays, thereby reducing the reflection rate and causing the veins to appear as a black pattern. This vein pattern is then verified against a pre-registered pattern to authenticate the individual.
As veins are internal in the body and have a wealth of differentiating features, attempts to forge an identity are extremely difficult, thereby enabling a high level of security. Additionally, the sensor of the palm vein device can only recognize the pattern if the deoxidized hemoglobin is actively flowing within the individual's veins.
The opportunities to implement palm vein technology span a wide range of vertical markets, including security, financial/banking, healthcare, commercial enterprises and educational facilities. Applications for the device include physical admission into secured areas; log-in to PCs or server systems; access to POS, ATMs or kiosks; positive ID control; and other industry-specific applications. With the new palm vein authentication device and considerable experience in image recognition, Fujitsu expects to be a leader in providing solutions for the biometric security industry.

¹ Vein patterns are unique to individuals and contain detailed characteristics for formulation of algorithm template.
Based on research to date by Fujitsu.
² Advanced authentication algorithm produces high level of accuracy.
Fujitsu's internal research resulted in a false acceptance rate of less than 0.00008% and a false rejection rate of only 0.01%. False acceptance rate is a rate at which someone other than the actual person is falsely recognized. False rejection rate is a rate at which the actual person is not recognized accurately.
