Biometric tech matches 2,048bit codes from palm vein images

The feature code is purely digital data, so it can be easily combined with encryption or other security technologies without diminishing authentication performance when converted. Because the technology makes it possible to generate multiple feature codes from a single piece of biometric data, in the case of data leaks or theft, a new feature code can be generated. This technique can be applied to fingerprint authentication as well as palm vein authentication.

Future Plans
With the aim of commercializing the technology in 2015, Fujitsu Laboratories plans to further improve the image normalisation technology in order to reduce restrictions on the hand's position and shape as much as possible, while increasing the accuracy of feature code extraction technology. The company is also working on designing and constructing a biometric authentication platform using these technologies, in addition to studying a wide range of scenarios where biometric authentication can be applied.
