Finger Vein Authentication using Smartphone Camera
Hitachi, Ltd. today announced the development of highly-accurate finger vein authentication technology using the camera commonly integrated in the standard smartphone. This technology will enable the use of biometric authentication using finger vein patterns to be available as a personal identification method for smartphone transactions such as online shopping, providing higher security and accuracy as well as preventing unauthorized use.
More specifically, the technology can identify each finger from a color image of the user's hand captured by a camera, and reliably extracts the vein pattern information. Authentication accuracy is increased by combining the information from multiple fingers.
