In recent times, an increasing, worldwide effort has been devoted to the development of automatic personal identification systems that can be effective in a wide variety of security contexts. Palmprints have a number of unique advantages: they are rich in features such as principal lines, wrinkles, and textures and these provide stable and distinctive information sufficient for separating an individual from a large population. In this paper, we present a novel biometric authentication system to identify a person's identity by his/her palmprint. Being a robust and reliable system, it was tested by more than 8,000 palmprint images with very low false acceptance rate (0.02%), and a relative high genuine acceptance rate (98.83%). The whole authentication process is less than 1 second. Finally, some possible applications are discussed which could be benefited by using palmprint technology.
