Amazon Introduces a New Way of Biometric Verification Called Amazon One


Amazon has just introduced its new biometric identification technology, called Amazon One. It will use your whole palm as your digital signature and will actually look for a person’s fingerprints and palm lines, to verify them and let them enter into the system.

It can be used in many places and used as a new security module leaving the old way of just using partial fingerprints and retina scans. It is in a way more convenient and reliable technology which has a number of usages.Amazon Introduces a New Way of Biometric Verification Called Amazon One

Amazon initiated the use of ‘Amazon One’ in their Amazon Go stores as well. The systems were installed at the gateways of their shops and a customer can only enter after they scan their palms using the scanner device.

It can be used to automate the ticket verification process at events, movies, and more. It can also be used with beacon devices which we’ve already seen in big stadiums such as the FCB stadium, Camp Nou.

The system is said to be used as a daily means of verification for people on the go without making the process seem like a hefty one according to the Amazon vice president Dilip Kumar.

“No two palms are alike, so we analyze all these aspects with our vision technology and select the most distinct identifiers on your palm to create your palm signature,” Amazon’s vice president said in a blog post.

He added “In most retail environments, Amazon One could become an alternate payment or loyalty card option with a device at the checkout counter next to a traditional point of sale system,”

The user data that is to be verified would not be stored onto the devices and would be available at a secure server over their cloud network. The reason being that they want maximum security with this kind of sensitive data and storing it on local devices would rather be risky.

So, there’s a possibility that you might be seeing these Amazon One devices in your nearby event venues or more. But as we know that India is not their primary market for fancy Amazon products, so the USA and other developed countries might get the taste of it first possibly.

But India is not the down on the list so on the successful reception of the new Amazon One, we can assume that India would be on the list of targeted countries soon.
