Windows Hello, Microsoft's biometric sign-in system for Windows 10, can now read your palm. Coming as part of a partnership with Fujitsu, palm vein authentication joins facial and fingerprint recognition among Windows Hello's supported log-in methods.
The integration takes advantage of Fujitsu's PalmSecure systems, which involve scanners either built into a laptop or attached via USB. To log in, users hover their hands over the sensor, which then scans for their unique vein pattern under the skin. It's a unique authentication technique that could be harder to dupe because a map of palm veins would be harder to copy than something like a fingerprint. Fujitsu is also talking up PalmSecure as a more hygienic system for authentication.
PalmSecure is already built into some Fujitsu Stylystic and Lifebook models, and it's likely we'll see this utilized more in the enterprise and business spaces. In fact, according to Fujitsu, the authentication tech is already in use at a number of organizations around the world, including Lotte Card and Brazilian bank Banco Bradesco.
