Abstract: A method of palmprint identification includes analyzing an area from an image of a palm to obtain texture data for the skin surface with the area. The texture data is compared to reference information in a database to determine the identity of an individual. An apparatus for capturing an image of a palm includes an enclosure with a window in it, and an image sensor and light source disposed within the enclosure and arranged to capture an image through the window. Protuberances are provided on the surface. The protuberances are arranged to be in known juxtaposition to a hand suitably placed on the window for capture of an image that includes the palm area of the hand.
