Does security run in your veins?

Thursday, 7 April 2005, 12:50 PM EST

ujitsu and its research arm, Fujitsu Laboratories, have developed a smaller version of their palm vein pattern authentication system that Fujitsu plans to put on sale in Japan before the end of March, the company said this week.

The authentication technology, which is being used by several Japanese banks for customer authentication at ATMs, verifies a person's identity by recognizing the pattern of veins in the palm when held over a sensor. The pattern, which is pre-registered in a database, is used by banks to authenticate the customer's identity instead of a PIN, or together with a PIN, according to Fujitsu.
