New Identity Verification Systems to be Used on the GMAT
8/21/2008


GMAT test centers will soon have systems in place to deter impersonators. Fujitsu's palm vein systems will be used to register the palm vein patterns when people apply for the test, and these will be verified at the test center the day they take the test.

The palm vein patterns will also be stored in a database to provide alerts on people using multiple identities.

Palm vein scanners are more accurate than fingerprint readers; the latter are subject to poor readings and skin irregularities. A palm scan is touted as being 99.99% accurate, with a likelihood of less than 0.00008% that one person’s scan will be recorded as someone else’s.

Aiming at a full roll-out in the fall, GMAC will pilot the device at testing centers in South Korea and India beginning this month.
