Biometric system is becoming increasingly important, since they provide more reliable and efficient means of identity verification. The physical dimensions of a human hand contain information that is capable of authenticating the identity of an individual. This information has been popularly known as hand or palm geometry; the hand geometry based identity verification system is being widely used in various applications like access control, time and attendance, point-of-scale, anti-pass back and interactive kiosks etc. This paper presents biometric user recognition system based on hand geometry. The goal of a biometric verification system consists in deciding whether two characteristics belong to the same person or not.
