Fujitsu to Launch Palm Vein Security Technology


Fujitsu today announced the global launch of its contactless palm vein authentication device for biometric authentication security.

The biometric security device uses vein patterns in the hand to verify a user's identity.

Fujitsu's palm vein authentication technology offers advanced biometric authentication security that is extremely difficult to breach and has advanced features that give this technology an edge over alternative methods of biometric security.

Features of the Contactless Palm Vein Authentication Device

1. Difficult to forge since biometric source is internal within the body

Palm veins are inside the body, thereby making them difficult to forge. Furthermore, compared to veins in the fingers or the back of the hand, palm veins are more complex thereby offering greater security.

2. Highly applicable across various types of users due to minimal impact from external factors

Fingerprint authentication can be hindered by surface abrasions on the skin or dry skin, and iris scanning can be difficult depending on the size of the user's eye, thereby preventing successful registration and verification of the user's data. Whereas, in contrast Fujitsu's contactless palm vein authentication device features minimal susceptibility from such external factors and therefore enables a high rate of applicability across various types of users.

Fujitsu collected data samples of 140,000 palm vein patterns from each hand of 70,000 people and verified reliability of its technology for recognition accuracy and rate of applicability. There were no cases in this data sample for which the technology was not applicable, thereby demonstrating its high rate of applicability.

3. Contactless, thereby minimizes hygiene concerns during scanning

In addition to being hygienic since the scanning is completed in mid-air without the need for the user's palm to touch a surface and thereby minimizes possible psychological resistance to its use attributable to hygiene concerns, the device is user-friendly in that scanning can be completed in a natural manner that is not awkward to the user.

In March of this year, Fujitsu demonstrated its palm vein authentication technology at the international IT and telecommunications trade show CeBIT in Hanover, where it gained wide attention and high regard from visitors.

From July this year, Fujitsu will collaborate with its group companies in North America, Europe, and Asia to aggressively drive its palm vein authentication business in these regions, with other regions to follow.

The palm-vein technology will be available from Fujitsu in three ways. The company will offer the sensor itself, a bundle of the sensor and its mPollux authentication software and through its system integrator companies direct to customers. An API will be available that allows users to add support for the sensor to existing systems.

Future Developments

Since its market introduction in Japan in July 2004, Fujitsu has sold approximately 5,000 units of its palm vein authentication device in Japan. Fujitsu has future plans to introduce a compact version of the device in Japan that is expected to become globally available as well. Miniaturization of the device will help further expand the market, and in the future Fujitsu will aim to incorporate the device in consumer products such as personal computers and mobile phones, as well as use in the automotive or home security industries.
