Recently companies in Europe have begun to roll out VeinID – a new finger vein biometric system presented by Hitachi, the technology firm from Japan.

VeinID includes biometric technology to identify people from the unique patterns of veins inside their fingers.

Within years Hitachi’s finger Vein ID might replace fingerprints as the most secure ID technology.


Finger vein authentication, introduced widely by Japanese banks in the last two years, is claimed to be the fastest and most secure biometric method. Developed by Hitachi, it verifies a person’s identity based on the lattice work of minute blood vessels under the skin. Easydentic Group, a European leader in the biometric industry based in France, has announced that it will be using Hitachi’s finger vein security in a range of door access systems for the UK and European markets.

In Japan, thousands of cash machines are operated by finger vein technology. Recently, Hitachi announced that it will introduce 20,000 finger vein authentication systems at shops and kiosks belonging to two Japanese companies, which will use the devices to protect the privacy of customer information by requiring storeworkers to authenticate themselves before accessing the customer database.

  • Less expensive than iris scanning or face/voice recognition.
  • False rejection rate is much lower than with fingerprinting
