Your veins in your Palm are unique.
The Fujitsu palm vein biometric authentication solution will be unveiled during Biometric Consortium Conference 2010. he Fujitsu PalmSecure sensor uses a near-infrared light to capture a user’s palm vein pattern, generating a unique biometric template that is matched against the palm vein patterns of pre-registered users. Unlike other readers, a PalmSecure device does not come into contact with the skin, making it extremely hygienic, non-intrusive and unrestricted by external factors such as skin abrasions, conditions or chemical damages. This advanced, contactless technology is applicable across industries, including healthcare, government, banking and education.
In addition, PalmSecure technology delivers highly accurate authentication that is virtually impossible to forge, leaves behind no biometric trace and generates extremely low false positive and false negative rates. Already in use in hundreds of organizations globally, PalmSecure biometric authentication has successful applications in healthcare patient registration, time and attendance management, physical access control, government identity management, PC user authentication, and OEM terminal devices, including point-of-sale (POS) systems and ATMs.
I wonder if I will see the day where I do not need a PIN code to get money from an ATM.
