Abstract: The use of biometric technologies for identity verification is growing rapidly, and the hand geometry is most widely used for person identification in the recent years, they gaining high acceptance in the security applications. This research aims to build a recognition system using Hand Geometric System based on Support Vector Machines (SVM), so as to overcome the problems of the possibility of fraud and forgery in the traditional identification methods.
