Fujitsu Innovates PalmSecure Multi-factor Authentication Device for the Hyperconnected World

10. March 2015

The Palm Secure Terminal for Fujitsu introduces a new way of biometric authentication to the market. LUNAR supported Fujitsu to create a welcoming and non-suspicious product expression, suggesting safety and providing intuitive user guidance

 
Innovation via palm vein structure:

A high tech sensor reads the palm veine structure and analyses a number of biometric parameters. The exact position of the hand in relation to the sensor is critical to a successful read out of the palm vein image. The user needs guidance for this positioning. LUNAR Europe solved this with intuitive guidance, eliminating actual touchpoints on the terminal, which brings a big advantage concerning hygiene and the maintenance of the terminal. 

 
News facts: 
  • Introduction of FUJITSU PalmSecure ID Match authentication technology which combines multi-factor authentication of card & pin with the individual’s unique palm-vein scan to maximize security
  • Organizations can easily develop their own specific applications, integrated within the device
  • FUJITSU PalmSecure truedentity is a newly developed software solution for use with any PalmSecure sensor to assure maximum security for user authenticationand identity management as well as to protect data transfer channels and the data conveyed on them
Fujitsu introduces the latest in a long line of human centric innovations based on the company’s ground-breaking biometric authentication technology that uses the unique pattern of veins in the human hand to verify identity. This new FUJITSU PalmSecure ID Match device protects access, data and payment and will be globally available – launched first of all in the EMEIA region – from early 2015, Meeting the latest European Union directives ID Match addresses security-sensitive scenarios across a wide range of sectors including finance, retail and social security as well as other public sectors.
 
 
In today’s hyperconnected world, human centric ICT gives organizations an unprecedented opportunity to co-create the services that their customers and other stakeholders demand – but only where privacy is protected and data is secure. With PalmSecure, Fujitsu is the perfect innovation partner to complement its clients’ business knowledge with Fujitsu’s authentication technology expertise and solution support, for example to customize the highly adaptable ID Match device – similar to a Point of Sale unit – to deliver a highly secure yet easy-to-use identity authentication solution.
 
 
Consumers, citizens and shoppers are becoming more open to new ways of engaging with an increasingly digital ecosystem of financial services providers, public sector agencies, and retailers. Models of ‘distributed business’ are also emerging where traditional organizational boundaries are less important and collaboration across geographical and organizational borders has become easier. However, in this brave new world security becomes even more important – enabling close collaboration and service innovation wherever possible, while maintaining tight control over access, data and payment.
 
 
FUJITSU PalmSecure ID Match maximizes physical security by allowing multi-factor identity verification, combining palm-vein technology and SmartCard with pin code option, for ‘real and true’ authentication to a very high level. It comprises a PalmSecure sensor, a touchscreen and processor board with latest ARM technology, plus a multi-card reader. Based on the associated Software Development Kit (SDK), Fujitsu partners and clients can easily integrate this solution within their enterprise-to-enterprise applications, such as access control (physical or logical), time attendance, or replacement of passwords within critical applications.
 
 
One of the ID Match applications to be delivered by Fujitsu during 2015 will be FUJITSU PalmSecure truedentity. This client/server-license-based security software will leverage the PalmSecure palm-vein technology realizing maximum security for user authentication, identity management and secured data transfer channels. truedentity leverages the same technology currently used in Germany’s electronic identity card project which was developed to meet strict data protection regulations. It protects sensitive corporate data against unauthorized access at the highest technical level. The protocols and mechanisms used provide robust protection against known attack scenarios and meet international standards.
 
LUNAR Europe has a long relationship with Fujitsu, supporting them with different design support and in this case we helped with the design of the Palm Secure Payment Terminal.
