Abstract—In the present society with quick outgrowth in electronic field info innovation , the security issue became important demand. Because of this truth, biometric verification has earned populist as it grants reliable and high-security methodology for personalized authentication. Finger vein biometry is a recognition strategy utilized to investigate finger vein models of people for proper verification. Finger vein biometry is one of the arising technics of different types owing to its aliveness baring, its qualities of low faking risk, and a part of stability throughout a significant time. A review of advances in biometrics of finger veins is presented in the paper. It concentrates on the following sides: the overall finger vein presentation, its stages comprising image acquisition, preprocessing, extraction of features, as well as matching, the current research work review, and the common datasets. At last, the applications, the challenges, and future directions are worked out. The paper is trying to collect all studies on finger vein biometry to be one comprehensive which helps the researcher to get easily started with their investigations in the finger vein biometry where it also demonstrates the advantages and disadvantages of different biometric traits to choose from them, it focuses on explaining each part in finger vein biometry, it highlights the current challenges, provides a proposed solution and shows different technologies to encourage the scientific researchers to complete working on it.
Keywords—biometrics, vein recognition, enrollment and decision, vein databases
