Biometric identification is an emerging technology that can solve security problems in the people networked society. A new approach for the personal identification using hand images is presented. This paper attempts to improve the performance of palm print based verification system by integrating hand geometry features. Unlike other bimodal biometric systems, the users do not have to undergo the inconvenience of using two different sensors since the palm print and hand geometry features can be acquired from the same image, using a digital camera, at the same time.
