Biometrics12 CMOS camera chip (similar to the ones used in cell phones) Low-power infrared LEDs (similar to TV remote control) Capture 3-D image of hand Two reflective surfaces Two mirrors Image converted to electronic template Template stored in database with ID How Hand Geometry Works
Biometrics13 How Hand Geometry Works Enrollment & Verification
Biometrics14 User places their hand on the platen Finger pins guide hand into proper position Top panel LED's extinguish when hand is in correct position –looks at specific pixels –LED's go out when light stops reflecting Hand imaged is captured Capturing a Hand Image Reflector Mirror
Biometrics15 A 3D image of the hand is acquired Over 90 distinct measurements are made –Length –Width –Thickness –Surface Area 9 byte template is generated What is Measured?
Biometrics17 User Population Size –Identify the number of users for the system –User numbers can help forecast future problems User acceptance –Is this a technology that encounter user resistance? Ease of use –What do they provide to aid users while presenting their biometric? Speed of use –Identify traffic flow through any control point –Does everyone go through the same opening? At the same time? –Is this area accessed by individuals who are limited physically? User Management –Store templates locally at biometric device –Template management software over serial, ethernet, modem –Smart Card (iClass, Mifare, DesFire) Critical Factors
Biometrics18 Accuracy Terms: False Accept Rate (FAR) -Measures how often a non-authorized user, who should not be granted access, is falsely recognized and maybe granted access False Reject Rate (FRR) -Measures how often an authorized user, who should be granted access, is not recognized -High FRR will frustrate users and slow acceptance Failure to Enroll (FTE) -Measures how often users are unable to enroll a biometric characteristic -FAR / FRR are inversely related -As threshold increases, FAR error rate decreases and FRR error rate increases Critical Factors

What is an Enrollment Enrollment is the process of obtaining a hand image and assigning it to an ID number Enrollment process is critical for installation success Bad enrollments produce verification problems Each user must have a unique ID number HandReader will not accept duplicate numbers ID numbers can be entered by swiping a badge or entering the ID number via the Keypad Each person is enrolled at the reader to gather their unique biometric, their “template” Users are programmed into the readers by having an administrator access the Enrollment menu 91Biometrics
The Enrollment Process Things to remember when assisting with enrollments: –Keep your hand flat on the platen The hand should be comfortable. Do not press down and/or forward. –Close all fingers towards center of the hand –Fingers should gently touch finger pins –Finger pin lights on the top panel will extinguish when the hand is placed correctly If a light remains lit, a finger may not be touching a finger pin –Once all finger pin lights go out, the camera will record a digital image of the hand 92Biometrics
The Enrollment Process Apply power to your HandKey 2 using the PS-110 power supply and allow the unit to boot. –What is the prom version? At the “Ready” prompt, enter command mode by pressing “Clear” and then “Enter”. At the “Enter Password” prompt, press “4” and then “Enter” Press “Yes” at “Add User”. Enter any 5 digit ID and then press “Enter”. Place your right hand as indicated by the hand diagram and finger LEDs on the top panel. Three hand placements will occur to obtain and average that will become your template. When added successfully, press “Clear” to exit command mode. Enroll left hand with palm facing up –Same enrollment rules apply Back of hand should be flat on platen fingers touching finger pins –Extra practice is strongly suggested 93Biometrics
94 Identify then Verify Use the keypad to enter your ID –For card readers, present your card –This readies the stored template for comparison Insert hand until you reach the web pin, then squeeze inward to touch all pins
Biometrics95 Verification The difference between the hand presented and the template stored on the HandReader Stored template Score is displayed upon a successful verification only The lower the score the closer the presented hand is to the stored template ID VERIFIED 19
Biometrics96 Thresholds The Higher the threshold, the easier it is to get in. Be careful as Higher thresholds will allow for False Accepts. The Lower the threshold the more secure the HandReader is. The user will need to take more care (be more precise) with their hand placements or there will be more False Rejects. Think of thresholds as a Limbo Bar By default the HandReaders are shipped out with their thresholds set at 100. If your system needs to be more secure lower your threshold.
We do not look at your fingerprints or palm prints. Hand Geometry measures unique size and shape of the fingers and hand. Surface Area Length Thickness Width Does Hand Geometry read fingerprints or Palm Prints? Biometrics98
Our advanced technology continues to update the person’s template to capture gradual hand changes. Whether from weight loss, pregnancy, or even wearing a band-aid, the reader will be able to recognize you. What happens if my hand changes, will the reader still recognize me? Biometrics99
People should enroll with jewelry they typically wear. Small pieces of jewelry will have little or no effect on the image capture. Fingernail length has little effect. Small bandages and bruises should have no effect. What happens if I change my jewelry, nails or have a band-aid on? Biometrics100
If you are unable to enroll with your right hand, you can turn your left hand upside down and enroll using your left hand. If all else fails, utilize the no hand enroll feature. Can I only use my right hand when enrolling? Biometrics101
Isn’t the HandReader filled with everyone’s germs from using it? Actually, the HandReader F-Series platens have an anti-microbial agent on them which prohibit the growth of bacteria. Look for the blue outline on the platen Biometrics102
