Why palm-based authentication?

Trouble-free user experience
Touchless fast access from any device. No awkward angles or unsanitary scanners
No new hardware required
Works with any type of camera and on any device
Extreme accuracy
Palm prints are more unique than fingerprints and faces. Identical twins can be easily told apart
Robust security
Spoofing palms, due to their low availability, is much harder than fingerprints or faces

Easy integration

Basic palm-based authentication is one of today's easiest to integrate authentication systems because it works on any camera-equipped device. No new hardware is required and everything is done through our SDK. This easy-to-use software library runs on all major operating systems and custom solutions are available on-demand

The leader in palm-based authentication

At Redrock Biometrics our patented palm-based authentication solution enables any camera-equipped device to read the user's unique palm print - even under low-light conditions (the light from as little as a cellphone screen is enough to capture an accurate palm image). This is all done while giving cutting edge accuracy and security

The security level can be strengthened even further on devices with higher-resolution adaptive focus RGB cameras (ie. phone-back cameras) and by combining RGB and IR cameras such as on Windows Hello enabled laptops

The human palm is a complex set of skin lines and creases that is unique enough to identify an individual

When a palm is placed in front of a camera from a distance of around six inches (15 cm) even a low-end camera such as ones already installed in phones, laptops and ATMs can capture the palm skin in great detail

Once captured the biometrics pipeline is a two stage process:
- The PalmID® Capture Module uses sophisticated machine vision techniques to turn the RGB video input stream into an authentication-ready palm image.
- The PalmID® Matching Module matches in real time the captured palm image against stored references. This process uses proprietary algorithms extensively tested against large datasets of palm images that ensure no false positives. Depending on the security model required, this process can be run on a remote server or locally

Use Cases

PalmID® meets the authentication needs for a wide range of markets, and is a high-performance solution for nearly any application with a standard camera. Among the many markets where PalmID is effective are:
