Sony's Latest Vein Authentication Technology

Sony’s Mofiria is the latest finger vein authentication technology that uses a unique method where a CMOS sensor captures scattered light inside the finger veins. The vein pattern is extracted from the captured finger vein image, and data from the pattern is compressed to store in memory, which makes it possible for the data to be stored on a mobile device. It is said that the authentication accuracy is less than 0.1% for “False Rejection Rate”, and takes only about 0.25 sec when using a mobile phone CPU. [Akihabara]
