PalmSecure™ SDK

The PalmSecure SDK is a software development kit (SDK) for developing solutions and products that use the PalmSecure sensor.

  • Supporting efficient development
    The SDK contains all the hardware and software required for development, and a complete set of all documentation.
    Furthermore, questions that arise during development can be answered quickly using the dedicated website.
  • Developing products using new ideas
    The SDK makes it possible to develop a variety of newly envisioned products that utilize palm vein authentication. Palm vein authentication technology can also be integrated into existing applications.

SDK Contents

The SDK contains the following hardware, software, and documentation.

Hardware

PalmSecure sensor, Guide, Holder, USB Interface cable (1 m)

Software

Authentication library A runtime library for registering and verifying vein data. This library can be redistributed free of charge as part of the user application.
Sensor driver The driver for operating the sensor.
Sample application Provides C/C++ source code and sequence charts that enable simple and rapid architecting of applications. These are available in standalone or client/server configurations.
Interface library sample
(Java / Visual Basic)
The sample programs which interface between applications created by the Java language or Visual Basic language and the Authentication library created by the C language.
Sample collection / authentication accuracy evaluation tool Allows vein data samples to be collected in the customer's sensor environment to calculate the authentication accuracy (FRR/FAR).
Sensor maintenance tool Provides a function to diagnose malfunctions in the sensor that can be used to identify failures.
Introduction tool A sales support tool that gives an easy to understand introduction to the operation of the palm vein authentication system, including registration of vein data and authentication.
Firmware update tool The firmware update tool provides support for the sensor maintenance.The firmware on the sensor unit can be updated easily with the firmware update tool.

Main documents

System development guide Describes procedures, precautions, and the development environment for developing palm vein authentication systems.
Authentication library
reference guide
The interface (API) specifications for integrating the palm vein authentication functionality into an application.
Interface Library Sample Manual
For Java/Visual Basic
Describes how to use and apply the Interface Library samples for Java/ Visual Basic, when the Palm Vein Authentication system application is developed in Java/Visual Basic
Hardware drawings A collection of diagrams related to the sensor and other hardware, and how to mount the sensor. This collection of diagrams can be used to effectively mount the sensor and design the palm guide to suit the customer's equipment.
