Imagine yourself standing in a queue, waiting for your turn to put your finger or hand on the biometric sensor to verify yourself in a govt. aided program or at the airport. Suddenly, the person in front of you sneezes and simply wipes hand and uses the sensor. Would you like to touch it again?” says Sanjay Srivastava, Manager Sales & Marketing, Fujitsu India.

The above statement defines the inhibitions attached to implementing Biometrics for public. Enrolment problems, Public Hygiene, Psychological Resistance, and Privacy Concerns are some of the key issues attached to it.

Fujitsu has introduced a Vascular Pattern Based Contactless Biometrics solution as the answer. PalmSecure, from Fujitsu, is designed in such a way that it can only detect the vein pattern of living people. “As a prerequisite it requires active blood flow, ensuring that a cut-off hand or dead person cannot be authenticated. The scanning process is fast and does not involve any contact. It detects the structure of pattern of veins at a distance of 4--6 cm. As the palm vein based biometric data is encrypted and can be made available on the smartcard, the users have control over the use of their personal info. ” informs Srivastava. As the biometric characteristics reside inside body, it is extremely difficult to duplicate or transfer.
