In this paper, the authors propose an efficient hand geometry based system to recognize individuals. Hand geometry used in this verification system utilizes some hand geometry features which cannot vary with small variation of palm position. In this work, users can place their hands freely without the need for pegs to fix the hand placement. This reduces the inconvenience to the users. Their system consists of a database where all the information about the authenticated user is stored. It extracts the features from a test image and compares it with the stored information on the database. The results are encouraging and confirm the utility of their system.
