#he ra$id %ro&th in the use of e'commerce a$$lications re(uires reliable and
automatic $ersonal identification for effective securit) control. #raditional* automatic*
$ersonal identification can be divided into t&o cate%ories+ token based* such as a
$h)sical ke)* an I, card* and a $ass$ort* and kno&led%e'based* such as a $ass&ord.
-o&ever* these a$$roaches have some limitations. In the token'based a$$roach* the
.token/ can be easil) stolen or lost. In the kno&led%e'based a$$roach* to some e0tent*
the .kno&led%e/ can be %uessed or for%otten. #hus* biometric $ersonal identification

attention over the last 75 )ears . -o&ever* &orkers and elderl) ma) not $rovide clear

and verification* des$ite the im$ortance of $alm$rint features. #here are man) uni(ue
features in a $alm$rint ima%e that can be used for $ersonal identification. Princi$al
lines* &rinkles* rid%es* minutiae $oints* sin%ular $oints* and te0ture are re%arded as
useful features for $alm$rint re$resentation. Various features can be e0tracted at

#he second ste$ is related to feature e0traction. We &ill tr) to e0tract features from
our hands that enable us to use them in reco%nition and detect the correct hand. We
should e0tract the lar%e number of features as $ossible as &e can. We should
concentrate on &idth* len%th* radius* $erimeter* area of fin%ers and hands.
