One of the safest biometrics of today is finger vein- but this technic  arises with some specific challenges, the most common  one being that the vein pattern is hard to extract because finger vein images are always low in quality, significantly  hampered the feature extraction and classification stages. Professional  algorithms want to be considered with the conventional hardware for capturing finger-vein images is  by using red Surface Mounted Diode (SMD) leds for this aim. For capturing images, Canon 750D camera with micro lens is used. For high quality images the integrated micro lens  is used, and with some adjustments it can also obtain finger print. Features extraction was used by a combination of Hierarchical Centroid and Histogram of Gradients. Results were evaluated with K Nearest Neighbor and Deep Neural Networks using 6 fold stratified cross validation. Results displayed improvement as compared to three latest benchmarks in this field that used 6-fold validation and SDUMLA-HMT. The work novelty is owing to the hardware design of the sensor within the finger-vein recognition system to obtain, simultaneously, highly secured recognition with low computation time ,finger vein and finger print at low cost, unlimited users for one device and open source.
