Palmprint based personal verification has quickly entered the biometric family due to its ease of acquisition, high user acceptance and reliability. This paper proposes a palm print based identification system using the textural information, employing different wavelet transforms. The transforms employed have been analyzed for their individual as well as combined performances at feature level. The wavelets used for the analysis are Biorthogonal, Symlet and Discrete Meyer. The analysis of these wavelets is carried out on 500 images, acquired through indigenously made image acquisition system. 500 palmprint obtained from 50 users with 10 samples each have been collected over a period of six months and have been evaluated for the performance of the proposed system. The experimental results obtained from the data have demonstrated the feasibility of the proposed system by exhibiting Genuine Acceptance Rate, GAR of 97.12%.
