Personal identification technology is applicable to various systems including area-access control, PC login and e-commerce. Biometrics is a statistical measurement of human physiological/behavioral traits. Biometric techniques for personal identification attracted attention as conventional means like keys, passwords or PIN numbers face problems regarding theft, loss, and reliance on user's memory. A multimodal biometric system using palmvein and palmprint is proposed by this work. Wavelet based texture features extract features from palmprint while autoregressive model based texture features are extracted for palmvein.
