In this paper, we propose a scheme of personal authentication using palm vein. The infrared palm images which contain the palm vein information are used for our system. Because the vein information represents the liveness of a human, this system can provide personal authentication and liveness detection concurrently. The proposed system include: 1) Infrared palm images capture; 2) Detection of Region of Interest; 3) Palm vein extraction by multiscale filtering; 4) Matching. The experimental results demonstrate that the recognition rate using palm vein is good.
