Sony has developed a finger vein authentication technology called 'mofiria'. The technology comes in a compact size for mounting on mobile devices such as personal computers or mobile phones. This high speed, compact device uses infrared LED and CMOS sensor to capture a snapshot of someone's veins. By using this technology, it will be nearly impossible for someone to forge someone elses vein pattern allowing perfect security. The biometrics that are currently being used can easily be forged, since they are mostly finger print systems.
