Finger Vein Authentication Technology


Finger Vein Authentication

Hitachi VeinID 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. As everyone's finger vein pattern is individual; it provides an ideal identification method without being intrusive.


Advantages of Finger Vein Technology


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. Unique vein patterns plus leading-edge technology means high accuracy rates (very low FTE, FRR and FAR). Small amount of data is required (400 bytes), allowing fast authentication
(< 1 second) and increased portability.


Vein pattern matching is completed within the blink of an eye, affording users a speedy authentication experience without the hassle and without the wait.


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.


Finger vein authentication devices are compact and therefore applicable as embedded devices in a variety of applications.

Non Traceable

Veins are inside the body, invisible to the eye, and not accessible. Therefore, it is extremely difficult to forge and impossible to manipulate. The use of light transmission to gather biometric data means that the condition of the skin surface does not affect accurate processing.


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.


A unique vascular biometric ............ Strong authentication for information security........ The convenience of fingerprint........ The accuracy of iris....... The only internal biometric.
