Poland’s 11th largest bank by assets, BPH, has plans
of installing finger vein
biometric scanners across its branch network with the aim of
providing customers with secure money transactions
services.

The technology for the finger vein biometric
scanners is being supplied by Hitachi Europe, and BHP has been
running pilot trials of the technology since June.

The palm-size scanners use infrared light to
capture the unique pattern of veins in a person’s finger. The
pattern is stored and used to verify the customer’s identity on the
next occasion they use the device.

BPH has, reportedly, placed an order for 1,800
of the finger vein biometric
scanning devices
, which will be installed across its network
of 287 branches in Poland by the end of the year.

Finger vein authentication was adopted by
Polish cooperative banks for security of ATM transaction in
2010.

Finger vein
scanning
technology has been in use extensively in Japan
since 2006 and currently there are more than 80,000
finger-vein-based ATMs installed across the country.
