Fujitsu develops world’s first authentication technology to extract and match 2,048-bit feature codes from palm vein images
Fujitsu today announced that it has developed the world’s first technology for extracting and matching 2,048-bit feature codes from biometric data (palm vein images). In contrast to the existing matching process of comparing vein feature patterns, the new method employs feature codes extracted from vein images that represent the features of the images in binary format. This, in turn, allows for simple comparison calculations and rapid authentication. As multiple feature codes can be generated from a single piece of biometric data, different codes can be used for different biometric authentication services. As a result, even in the case of leaked registered data, a new feature code can be generated and registered to give users peace of mind and uninterrupted service.
The new technology is expected to expand the scope of use for palm vein authentication technology, while also enabling a larger number of customers to safely and securely take advantage of biometric authentication.
