Features: Communications solutions provider Fujitsu
Asia Ptv Ltd has announced that its PalmSecure palm vein biometric
authentication device will be available for the ASEAN and Indian markets from
end-June this year.

PalmSecure emits near-infrared rays that are absorbed by deoxidized hemoglobin
present in blood flowing through a user’s palm veins. This causes an image of
the palm to be captured as a vein pattern, which is then verified against the
user’s pre-registered pattern to grant (or deny) access to a physical location
or computer network.

The device, a contactless, hygienic solution, captures a vein pattern only if
hemoglobin is actively flowing through a user’s veins. Additionally, research
indicates that no two individuals have vein patterns that are exactly alike.
These factors give the PalmSecure an edge over competing biometric
identification products.

· Smaller footprint:
At 35×35×27mm, the PalmSecure is smaller — albeit thicker — than a
matchbox and only one-quarter the size of its predecessor, thereby expanding the
range of potential applications.

· Faster authentication: The time
required for one-to-one authentication using the PalmSecure is approximately
half the time required for one-to-one authentication using its predecessor.

· Wider operable temperature range: The
PalmSecure has a maximum operable temperature of 60°C (compared to 50°C for
its predecessor), thus expanding the range of possible outdoor applications.

· Greater connectivity: The
PalmSecure can be connected directly to the universal serial bus (USB) port of a
notebook PC or embedded into the keyboards of desktop PCs.

· Enhanced worldwide technical support: A
dedicated PalmSecure support website offers technical data, enhanced services
for related software and timely Q&A support. In addition, software
development kits (SDKs) provide sample applications and tools for evaluating
authentication rates. Japanese and English versions of such SDKs will be
available from end-April and end-June respectively.

Price: Rs15,750 per sensor.
