Contactless Authentication Solutions
PalmID® is a highly secure authentication process that provides non-touch authentication quickly and securely, and which can assist on both endpoint and personal devices.
The human palm contains a complex set of skin lines and creases that are unique enough to identify an individual. When a palm is placed in front of a camera at a distance of around 6 inches (or 15cm), even a low-end camera (such as the ones already installed on mobile phones, laptops and ATMs) can capture the palm skin in great detail.
Once captured, the PalmID® Capture Module uses machine vision techniques to turn the RGB video input into an authentication-ready palm template for enrolment or verification.
The PalmID® Matching Module then matches the captured palm image against stored references and, in just 50-300 milliseconds, it matches the verification (login) attempt against the enrolment template using proprietary algorithms which have been extensively tested against tens of thousands of palm images.
The biggest difference between facial recognition and palm vein biometrics is in the area of privacy. So, unlike with facial recognition, it is impossible for your palm vein pattern to be captured from a distance.
You do not need any special equipment. PalmID® will work with any regular RGB and infrared (IR) camera.
Yes, depending on the security model required, PalmID® can be run on a remote server or locally.
We currently offer two pricing models – one for mobile devices; the other for hardware such as ATMs/POS. We work closely with our customers to help design the best solution to suit their needs.
