Q5id chooses Redrock Biometrics’ palm print and vein biometrics for enrollment, authentication

Identity management startup Q5id has integrated palm print and vein biometrics developed by Redrock Biometrics to upgrade its biometric enrollment and authentication solutions, the company announced.

To prove identities and secure transactions, Q5id uses multiple biometric enrollment and authentication methods such as eight-factor authentication, live video interviews, multiple biometrics captures and active voice authentication. The solution can be applied to various markets, including education, financial services and telecommunications.

“Our focus is to go beyond authentication and prove identities, we are able to prove an organization’s customers’ digital identity and real-world identity are the same,” said Steve Larson, Q5id’s chairman and CEO, in a prepared statement. “We partnered with Redrock Biometrics due to the difficulty in spoofing palm-print technology, its very high accuracy rate and the fact that our customers would not need to install additional hardware, such as fingerprint scanners.”

To create unique palm signatures, PalmID technology uses standard RGB and/or infrared cameras to collect palm prints and/or subdermal veins. The algorithms can rapidly match palm signatures, regardless of palm position, orientation and lighting conditions.

“Q5id needs a solution that is secure, touchless and unique,” writes Redrock Biometrics co-founder Hua Yang in the press release. “The PalmID solution far outperforms competitive touchless technologies, such as face recognition, in terms of accuracy and reliability. It is the best available solution for touchless identity management, authentication and security.”

PalmID was recently chosen by barcode technology provider FalconPro Technology to co-develop a tokenless large-scale identification solution for mass transportation and payments.
