Biometrics as a method for identification systems has been widely used for its robustness; one of its used is based on human palm. Palm has unique characteristics to be used in personal identification because of it features, namely palm print and hand geometry. This paper studied about biometrics of palm for identification system using the physical form of human hands, represented by the image of the palm. The methodology for palm recognition consisted of block-based line detection which dealing with palm print feature extraction process, and chain code which solved the hand geometric feature extraction.
