This paper presents an FPGA based multimodal palm biometric system. System is prototyped on an Altera DE2-115 board from Terasic, using an additional hardware for palm image acquisition in two light spectrums, communication with smart card, and debugging. System captures person’s palmprint and palm vein images, extracts biometric data, encrypts it, and prepares for comparison. The comparison of the biometric data is performed on smart card for additional security. The proposed multimodal palm biometric system achieves a matching accuracy of EER of 16.65 % and a verification processing time of 0.8 seconds.
