With the advent of modern computing technology, there is increased reliance on biometric to provide stronger personal authentication. Among the variety of biometric solutions in the markets, hand-based system is the oldest and most successful form of biometric technology.. This thesis describes the design and implementation of a hand-based biometric system by using visible and infrared imagery. An acquisition device which could capture both colour and infrared hand images is developed. An ordinary web camera is modified to capture the hand vein that normally requires a specialized infrared sensor. The design is simple and low-cost, and do not require any additional installation of special apparatus. The device can capture the epidermal and subcutaneous features from the hand simultaneously. In specific, features namely hand geometry, palm print, palmar knuckle print, palm vein, and finger vein are acquired from the hand recognition. In this research, a contactless acquisition device is developed in such way that the user does not need to touch or hold onto any peripheral.
