0.00008% Chance of False Authentication – Fujitsu PalmSecure

Posted on 13 March 2014 by


Over at UMPCPortal last week I took a long look at Windows 8 security features. One of the weak-points in my opinion is authentication. It’s single-channel, requires no proof of ‘personal presence’ and it leaves the user to choose the level of security. Poor passwords are a killer and as a result I’ve been looking at alternative and two-stage solutions. PalmSecure is a palm-vein detection technology and it’s pretty much the best technology out there for laptops right now.

PalmSecure has been around for at least a year as a physical entrance authentication mechanism but Fujitsu have now managed to build it into an Ultrabook. The Fujitsu U904 is now available to order with the technology at a $50-or-so premium over the fingerprint reader. Although it’s incredibly secure, it’s also extremely easy to use.  Take a closer look at it in the video below.



More information on PalmSecure is available via Fujitsu USA.

    That’s nice, but the windows password still exists as backup solution. So the windows password better should be difficult.
