Barclays and Hitachi unveil biometric security vein scanner (V3 co uk)

Barclays and Hitachi have announced a biometric reader, which scans the unique vein patterns in a finger as part of an effort to fight fraud with a more secure take on fingerprint scanning.

The Barclays Biometric Reader consists of a SIM card that holds the unique vein structure information of a single user, and a small infra-red scanner. By using Hitachi’s VeinID technology the reader captures the image of the vein pattern in a user’s finger, which, like a fingerprint, is unique to individuals.
