Computer-aided personal identification is emerging as a top-notch technology in various automated security systems. Different biometric features, such as fingerprint pattern, speech quality, face feature, signature manner, hand geometry and iris characteristics, have been proposed as means for individual identification. In this paper, we developed a brand new method-a unique on-line palmprint identification system-to verify individuals by measuring the inner surface of a palm. We began the introduction of our approach by discussing the system's key issues. Next, we thoroughly explained the two crucial parts of the system: the on-line palmprint capture device and the feature extraction algorithm. Experiments and their results were shown to prove the effectiveness of the proposed method on our palmprint database.
