admin | October 21st, 2010 - 7:32 am

Palm Vein Authentication Leverages Innovative Biometric Technology to Deliver Enhanced Access Control while Simplifying Security Management

Foothill Ranch, CA and Dallas, TX – ASIS 2010, October 12, 2010 — Fujitsu Frontech North America Inc., a leading provider of IT-based business solutions, including advanced technology products, biometric security, and digital media solutions, today announced the deployment of its PalmSecure™ palm vein biometric authentication technology at Vantage Data Centers’ Santa Clara campus. Vantage Data Centers provides energy-efficient, scalable, wholesale data center solutions to enterprise customers. The PalmSecure highly accurate, comprehensive, multi-factor biometric identification and access control capabilities allow Vantage is able to protect proprietary information and costly infrastructure throughout its campus while ensuring that only privileged personnel are able to access to secure areas. PalmSecure solution will be showcased at the Fujitsu booth, #4412 and the Johnson Controls Booth, #3320, at ASIS International 56th Annual Seminar and Exhibits (ASIS 2010), taking place October 12-14, 2010 at the Dallas Convention Center in Dallas, Texas.

Due to the extremely sensitive data and expensive infrastructures stored at Vantage Data Centers, security represents a primary concern for customers and key objective for Vantage. The PalmSecure technology offers up to three factors of authentication in a single unit installation, as well as a bonus capability of an alternate factor of authentication via registration of the user’s second hand. As a result, Vantage can require biometric authentication for all ingress points and layer additional factors of authentication as needed, specifically in mission-critical areas. For example, a customer needing to enter the front door to the building would do so via biometric authentication. The same customer needing access to a mission-critical area would then need to biometrically authenticate and provide up to two more factors of authentication, including key-pad code and/or smart card. The application of this comprehensive, multi-factor technology allows Vantage to meet customer security demands and support various compliance regulations.

“By offering industry-leading identity and access management, we are able to protect the entire data center facility and customer assets with the highest level of security,” said Jim Trout, CEO of Vantage Data Centers. “We reviewed the prevailing biometric technologies implemented in the data center industry, including fingerprint readers and retinal scanners, and found that both provide challenges to customers unfamiliar with these security measures due to concerns over personal harm and improper use. The Fujitsu PalmSecure technology, however, delivers optimal capabilities and level of user comfort unmatched in our search and we are delighted with the results.”

“The need for biometric authentication solutions is clear; however, we’ve seen products on the market that present signification challenges in terms of accuracy, enrollment difficulty and residual trace issues,” said Vic Herring,vice president of sales and marketing, Fujitsu Frontech North America Inc. “PalmSecure addresses these challenges head on, providing customers with a proven biometric authentication solution for access security management that is highly accurate, easy to enroll and contactless. We are honored to be chosen by Vantage Data Centers to safeguard its assets, secure areas and facilities.”

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 advanced, contactless biometric technology generates rapid and highly accurate authentication that is virtually impossible to forge, leaves no biometric trace behind following authentication, and is not affected by the presence of hand lotions, chemicals, abrasions, skin conditions or cold environment effects.

The deployment at Vantage’s Santa Clara campus is the result of a collaboration between Fujitsu and BioGuard Components and Technologies Ltd., which specializes in biometric systems design and manufacturing. BioGuard developed a physical access control solution that leverages the award-winning PalmSecure palm vein authentication technology. The joint solution delivers best-in-class ID management and physical access control that is highly secure, affordable and easy to install. The turn-key solution offers a complete integrated package for customers who wish to upgrade their access control systems while utilizing existing infrastructure and resource investments.

“We have worked closely with Fujitsu to optimize the PalmSecure authentication technology with our accelerator and middleware solutions,” said Shalom Shushan, president and CEO of BioGuard. “Our hardware and software development team created a new platform designed to ensure the functionality of PalmSecure biometric that seamlessly integrates into Vantage Data Centers’ campus and facility. Not only is Vantage’s facility more secure, but also users are no longer required to carry smartcards, eliminating threats posed by stolen smartcards and reducing cost associated with smartcard replacement. The result is a win-win for Vantage and for our joint Fujitsu/BioGuard solution.”

Auto Theft and Physical Access Control

Motor vehicle theft is a serious problem that causes losses in the millions of dollars to private individuals and companies each year. Motor vehicle theft includes the stealing of automobiles, trucks, buses, and motorcycles. Stolen automobiles are used in the commission of many serious crimes including bank robbery, criminal escape attempts, and terrorist bombings. Traditional security methods include the standard key, as well as additional anti-theft hardware such as steering wheel and brake pedal locks, and electronic access control devices such as immobilizing devices with ignition cutoffs and starter and fuel system disablers. Another level of security might add electronic tracking devices. The electronic access control and tracking devices increases the options for protecting and granting access to a vehicle, and replaces the mechanical lock and key method with credential based control that give an added measure of management and security to the vehicle. Management software must administer a database of users and control who, where, and when to grant access.

The access authentication method must be secure. A biometric access control system that grants or denies access based on the reliable and established fingerprint technology is one of the most secure and foolproof methods for a credential based authentication approach to access control. This simple biometric solution facilitates a dependable access control system to increase security for both private vehicles and large commercial trucking and leasing industries.

Fingerprint Technology

Fingerprint technology has been around for a long time and is a sophisticated and verified form of identification. It has been used in criminal investigations for almost a hundred years. In fact, a fingerprint is so unique that it remains unchanged throughout a person’s lifetime. It is a human beings built in identity card. Combining fingerprint identification with modern scanning technology, a simple cost effective access control solution is created. A fingerprint scanner captures the unique fingerprint pattern and stores it on a database. The stored fingerprints serve as the basis for various levels of access control software to meet the requirements of a private user or business.

The CarGuard Physical Access Control System

The CarGuard access control system takes advantage of the captured fingerprint by analyzing the sample and comparing it to the other sample images stored. A person trying to gain access passes his finger through the high performance fingerprint scanner. The cutting edge scanner reads the fingerprint from the live tissue layer eliminating any problems associated with skin conditions or fake fingers. The CarGuard system performs a 1:N matching procedure on the acquired fingerprint which compares the input fingerprint with the information in the database. If there is a match, the person can gain access or not depending on the level of clearance assigned. The CarGuard system performs identification and matching exceptionally well and offers low false accept and false reject rates. If the driver is not enrolled in the system the CarGuard system prevents ignition of the engine. The system is connected to a GSM tracking device in case the vehicle is stolen by towing the vehicle.

Iris scan

admin | April 14th, 2010 - 1:28 pm

An iris scan provides an analysis of the rings, furrows and freckles in the colored ring that surrounds the pupil of the eye. More than 200 points are used for comparison. This technology is widely considered the most reliable form of biometric identification. Like a retina scan, an iris scan also provides unique biometric data that is very difficult to duplicate and remains the same for a lifetime. The scan is similarly difficult to make (particularly for children or the disabled).
