Lotte Card introduces ‘pay with your palm’

Lotte Card introduces ‘pay with your palm’ — Korea JoongAng Daily — “Lotte Card’s Hand Pay allows customers to pay using an individual’s distinct vein pattern on the palm as identification… Hand Pay maximizes convenience when paying because customers do not need credit cards or even smartphones.”

    Lots of luck with this. Beyond the hygiene problem, there is the security problem. Biometrics are convenience features, not security. This one may be a little less vulnerable to replay than some, but not immune. Add the enrollment problem, i.e., binding the palm print to the identity and credit, not as easy as mobile.
