Abstract: This research method demonstrates a study about personal verification and identification using hand geometry. Hand geometry used in this research consists of the lengths and widths of fingers and the width of a palm. Users can place their hands freely without the need for pegs to fix the hand placement. In this method, six different distance functions were tested and compared. Test data obtained were from different users. Among the six different distance functions, S1 gives the best results in both verification and identification.
