Finger Vein Authentication Modules for Embedding in Devices

Lineup of device-embedded-type modules

  • Easy introduction
  • Space saving
  • Simple
  • Low cost
  • Easy management

We provide three types of unique finger vein authentication modules for embedding. The modules will comply with demands of service providers that plan to incorporate finger vein authentication into their equipment or systems and of equipment and system vendors that aim to enhance added value by employing finger vein authentication modules.

Compact "H4E series"

A compact module with a mechanism to irradiate light beams from right and left onto the finger and capture a finger vein image. We launched the H4E series with drastically enhanced authentication accuracy and usability and higher support for outdoor use.

See the details.

High-capacity and highly accurate "H1EAX series"

This self-authentication module can perform all processes, from capturing images and authentication to issuing results, and can be embedded in equipment and devices easily, thus providing a highly secure system backed up by finger vein authentication. The sequential authentication is employed to attain large-scale 1:N authentication.

See the details.

USB "H1E-USB series"

This desktop module can easily be connected to the system equipment via USB interface. This self-authentication module performs all processes, from capturing images and authentication to transmitting results, reducing burden on the system equipment so that it may in compliance with various OSs. Highly secure systems can be constructed thanks to finger vein authentication.

Features of biometric authentication

Biometric authentication is the best answer to prevent impersonation and enhance management efficiency!

Authentication by IC cards or IDs and passwords

While IC cards and ID/passwords are frequently used for personal authentication, there is a risk of impersonation, and their management frequently becomes cumbersome if a card is lost or a password is forgotten. When strict measures against confidential information leak are required, biometric authentication is far superior to IC cards and ID/passwords because of its uniqueness and difficulty in impersonation.

If you emphasize ease in introduction and higher recognition accuracy and stability in selecting biometric authentication,

then "finger vein authentication" is the answer.
Why?

Biometric authentication attaining both high precision and low cost

Since various technologies and systems are available for biometric authentication, it is difficult to select one. Facial authentication features non-contact authentication and thus ensures higher hygiene and convenience. However, problems with it lie in violation of privacy and susceptibility to light conditions and orientation of the face. Fingerprint authentication poses a problem of reliability, since impersonation has occurred using silicone fingerprint replicate in the past. On the other hand, authentication based on the finger veins, unlike the finger print, ensures extremely high authenticity while still being easy to introduce.

Hitachi's finger vein authentication technology

Our authentication technology performs personal authentication using images of finger vein patterns obtained by passing near-infrared rays through the finger. An area with veins is detected on the finger image as a structural pattern and compared with a registered vein pattern to identify the person.
