Vein recognition or vascular biometrics refers to identity management solutions that authenticate based on the unique patterns made by a user’s veins. Said veins can be in a user’s palm, in their finger. Though the technology used in most vascular biometrics solutions is still too big to be designed into a smartphone, the modality is carving out a niche in finance and physical access control thanks to a special trait inherent in vein patterns. Because vein patterns are located beneath the skin and must have blood flowing through them to be scanned, they are virtually impossible to spoof.

The vendors listed below will help you find the right vein recognition solution for you.
