a XXI century replacement for paper logbooks
PalmID SaaS is a cloud service for palm-based biometrics using a visible light (VL) camera, or an infrared (IR) camera, or a combination of the two (VL+IR). A simple API allows phones, tablets, and PCs with cameras (including Windows Hello VL+IR modules) to be used as biometric scanning devices. A controlled lighting environment significantly improves consistency of the matching results. VL scan provides and estimated 100X better accuracy than an IR scan; using a combined VL+IR scanners produces an unmatched accuracy in the range of 1 per 1 trillion.
PalmID SaaS operates across multiple devices. For instance, a user can register on a smartphone using VL and then switch to a specialized VL-IR scanner.
As far as security is concerned, a high-resolution VL scan with controlled lighting is highly resistant to spoofing (Level 1 PAD detection), IR scan is an even better solution, and VL+IR is practically impossible to spoof.
