Biometrics have become important for authentication on modern mobile devices. Thereby, different biometrics are differently hard to observe by attackers: for example, veins used in vein pattern authentication are only revealed with specialized hardware. In this paper we propose a low cost mobile vein authentication system based on Scale-Invariant Feature Transform (SIFT). We implement our approach as vein recording and authentication prototype, evaluate it using a self recorded vein database, and compare results to other vein recognition approaches applied on the same data.
