Biometric Authentication | Biometric Identification HitachiVeinID
HitachiVeinID Biometric Authentication technology is one of the most advanced biometric identification technologies. Hitachi's Finger Vein attesting technology identifies finger vein patterns that exist inside the human body, eliminating tampering while increasing reliability and security and, as everyone's finger vein pattern is individual, it provides an ideal identification method without being intrusive
In the information age, protection of personal information and corporate assets is key to building a safe and secure society. Among prevailing security methods, biometrics promises to be the most effective solution of the future.
At Hitachi, we have successfully developed a high-precision, user-friendly biometrics technology that uses the vein patterns of a finger to authenticate an individual's identity. Our cutting-edge finger vein authentication solution is designed for a wide range of applications, including access control for ATMs, PCs, airports, automobiles, and home or office buildings. In the various aspects scenes of your daily life, your finger will be the key to your peace of mind.
As finger vein patterns are found internally within the body, forgery is extremely difficult. Dryness or roughness on the surface of the skin also has no effect on the accuracy of vein pattern authentication.
Rates for acceptance of false users or rejection of true users are among the lowest for biometric technologies, making finger vein authentication a reliable security solution.
Vein pattern matching is completed within the blink of an eye, affording users a speedy authentication experience without the hassle and without the wait.
Finger vein authentication devices are compact and therefore applicable as embedded devices in a variety of applications.
The vein patterns of each finger are unique, so each individual can register multiple fingers as "back-up" for authentication purposes. Registration is possible even for sweaty, oily or dirty fingers.
Finger vein authentication uses leading-edge light transmission technology developed by Hitachi to undergo pattern-matching and authentication. Near-infrared light is transmitted through the finger and partially absorbed by haemoglobin in the veins to capture a unique finger vein pattern profile, which is then matched with a pre-registered profile to verify individual identity.
