In this paper, the authors have developed a prototype hand geometry-based verification system and analyzed its performance. They have demonstrated the practical utility of this system by designing an application that uses hand geometry as opposed to password for restricting access to a web site. They present their preliminary verification results based on hand measurements of individuals captured over a period of time. The proposed system is reliable and user friendly as it is developed in LabVIEW. The availability of datalog files in LabVIEW makes it one of the most promising candidates for its usage as a database. The system developed in LabVIEW detects the user in almost real time with a reasonable accuracy and repeatability.
