KDDI palm authenticationTOKYO, Japan – During this year’s CEATEC exhibition in Japan, KDDI seems to have depended solely on its new palm-authentication app for smartphones.

Although KDDI’s booth didn’t have many surprises in store for the enthusiastic bunch, the palm-authentication app is quite an impressive milestone in mobile security. The app differs from the Palm Reader technology from Fujitsu in that it actually reads one’s palm by taking a picture and storing it for future use.

Modern high-resolution camera sensors enable the app to capture delicate details of the palm accurately, such as the palm lines. The image can thus be utilized in the unlocking mechanism of the phone, where users will just have to let their phones scan palms through the camera once again.

With the increasing popularity of biometric security systems like Fujitsu’s Palm Security, it is fair to predict that KDDI’s palm authentication system will soon arouse curiosity among smartphone manufacturers.
