Finger Vein Authentication Technology

Logical Access Control

USB Finger Vein Biometric Scanner

The Hitachi USB Finger Vein Biometric Scanner
“H-1” (model name PC-KCA110), enhances IT security by providing a more accurate method of user authentication over password entry. Unauthorised system access through impersonation or password cracking is eliminated. The device connects directly via USB port to a PC running Windows® Operating System.

Product Features

Accurate Authentication

The “H-1” device dispatches near infrared rays from the top of the finger, with the transmitted light captured by a camera below. The device hood prevents external light from streaming in, which increases authentication accuracy.

  • False Acceptance rate (FAR): 0.0001%*
  • False Rejection Rate (FRR): 0.01%*
  • Failure to Enrollment Rate: (FTER): Less than 0.03%*
  • (* Measured with 1:1 authentication based on ISO/IEC19795-1)

Easy to Use Design

There is a notched pedestal within the device designed for stable resting of the finger. This ensures comfortable and correct usage.

High Security

The data transmitted to and from the host PC is securely encrypted.
