OKI Delivers First ATM Incorporating Finger Vein Authentication to Chinese Bank
TOKYO --(Business Wire)--
OKI (News - Alert) (TOKYO: 6703) today announced the delivery and start of actual use
of an ATM incorporating finger vein authentication technology at the
Bank of Lanzhou in China (headquarters in Lanzhou city, Gansu province).
This marks OKI's first delivery of an ATM incorporating finger vein
biometric authentication technology to a Chinese bank. OKI aims for
expanded sales of ATMs incorporating finger vein authentication, a
feature that makes forgery and identity fraud significantly more
difficult. This function is especially important in the Chinese ATM
market, where demand is growing for transaction safety and security.
Based on OKI's ATM-Recycler
G7, cash-recycling ATM, the ATM incorporating finger vein
authentication functionality delivered to the Bank of Lanzhou
incorporates the finger vein authentication module co-developed by mofiria
Corporation (hereinafter called as mofiria) and OKI. OKI adopted this
module since using vein patterns for authentification makes forgery and
identity-tief more difficult than that of surface of a finger, and is
designed to minimize the calculations required for authentication so
faster and more secure authentication can be realized.
China has seen growing demand for convenience and safety among ATM
users. Bank of Lanzhou made positive assessments of OKI's strong track
record with ATMs in China and of the advantages provided by mofiria
finger vein authentication. This resulted in a trial run and now in the
actual deployment of these ATMs. The finger vein authentication featured
in these units will enhance transaction safety, allowing the bank to
provide various advanced and convenient services, including cash
withdrawals without cash cards.
Moving forward, OKI will continue to provide ATMs offering enhanced
safety and convenience features in China and other overseas markets.
