First vascular recognition solution to earn certification
Fujitsu announced that the Fujitsu PalmSecure vascular biometric authentication technology has been certified under the International Common Criteria for Information Technology Security Evaluation as Evaluation Assurance Level 2.
The Fujitsu PalmSecure sensor uses a near-infrared light to capture a person’s palm vein pattern, generating a unique biometric template that is matched against pre-registered users’ palm vein patterns. This vascular pattern recognition technology provides a highly reliable type of authentication — its false acceptance ratio is just 0.00008 percent — in a form factor that is non-intrusive, easy to use and generates extremely fast comparisons. The Common Criteria certification applies to the Fujitsu PalmSecure Software Developer Kit (SDK).
SDK enables developers to enhance the security of their software applications and IT systems by supplying all the necessary equipment and resources for integrating PalmSecure. The Common Criteria certification significantly reduces the time and costs associated with having their own systems assessed for Common Criteria certification by demonstrating to evaluators that the developers are building their systems using components that are certified under Common Criteria.
