Mitsubishi, Hitachi, Aktif Bank partner to assess vein biometric authentication platform for Turkish market

Mitsubishi will assess the potential of a biometric authentication platform in Turkey in a feasibility study, along with a European subsidiary of Hitachi and Turkey’s Aktif Bank.

The three companies are forming a non-corporate entity called HMC Digital to perform the study. The companies note that increasing digitization has increased awareness of platform business models as a new type of social infrastructure.

Hitachi’s biometric finger vein authentication system VeinID Five and the company’s Public Biometric Infrastructure public-key infrastructure (PKI) product will be used in the study. The use of internal biometrics will minimize the risk of spoof attacks or aging-related misidentifications, according to the announcement.

Over the course of a year, VeinID will be deployed in services and applications from a range of trial customers, including financial institutions, government bodies and private enterprises across Turkey.

Mitsubishi has a strategic alliance with Calik Holding, the Turkish conglomerate Aktif Bank is a subsidiary of. The bank’s network includes more than 10 million customers.

When the business potential has been assessed, the partners plan to build a platform to centralize personal information management and identity verification, which can be connected to different applications and services to provide secure and convenient biometric authentication, with hoped-for economic and social benefits.

Vein recognition biometrics have been growing in popularity for a range of uses, including age verification in UK pubs.
