Fujitsu palm vein recognition integrated in new biometric access control offerings from Recogtech and BioSec
Highly-secure palm vein biometrics from Recogtech has been integrated with Nedap Security Management’s AEOS access control system under a new partnership between the two companies.
Nedap customers will have the option to implement RecogTech Palm-ID and Palm-ID card, which both leverage Fujitsu’s PalmSecure sensor. Nedap access control experts extensively tested and validated the palm vein recognition technology to cement the partnership, according to the announcement. Recogtech and Fujitsu announced the integration of Fujitsu technology for Palm-ID card in 2018.
The Palm-ID card stores the biometric template on the card for enhanced privacy and data security. Recogtech’s Palm-ID is also now available for smart cards designed for use with Mifare Desfire (EV1) readers. Verification is performed separately by three processors, which exchange data only “on a need to know basis,” the companies say.
“Recogtech is a wonderful addition to our ecosystem of integrations as we are able to provide a highly secure and scalable biometric access control solution. On top of that, Recogtech has adopted a very proactive approach when it comes to GDPR challenges that arise in biometric environments with their Palm-ID card, which is impressive!” says Nedap Security Management Technical Engineer and Solution and Integration Specialist Wesley Keegstra.
“The Palm-ID is a high-end security product. It works very fast, has a very low false acceptance rate and can be used by large numbers of people,” says Recogtech Director Eduard de Knegt.
The Palm-ID card also enables easy access to different locations worldwide, as multinational businesses do not have to register employee details in separate databases.
De Knegt notes that Nedap has a worldwide base of thousands of customers, many of which fit Recogtech’s target market.
Also in access security news, BioSec Group has launched a residential version of its BS GateKeeper biometric system for apartment buildings to enhance security while ensuring convenient and fast access for residents.
The palm vein recognition replaces access cards which can be stolen, passwords that can be forgotten, and token which can be lost with biometric identity verification at the wave of the resident’s hand, according to a company announcement. Authentication takes only a second using the system, BioSec says.
“By using our biometric access control solution, residents do not have to rely on cards or access codes. They will be identified based on an absolutely unique identifier – their hands, which cannot be copied, reproduced or stolen, providing a high security level with a wave of the hand,” comments BioSec Group CEO Péter Györgydeák.
The access control system will be available with the BS Triple 1 device, which supports contact and contactless finger and full-hand versions to meet different user requirements.
BioSec recently showcased its Fujitsu BioSec product line based on PalmSecure.
