Palm Vein Identification (PVI) is a modern biometric security technique used for enhancing security and authentication systems. The key characteristics of palm vein patterns include its uniqueness to each individual, its unforgettability, non-intrusiveness and its ability for disallowing unauthorized persons. However, the extracted features from the palm vein patterns are huge with high redundancy. In this paper, we propose a combined model of two-Dimensional Discrete Wavelet Transform, Principal Component Analysis (PCA), and Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) (2D-DWTPP) that feeds wrapper model with an optimal subset of features to enhance the prediction accuracy of -palm vein patterns. The 2D-DWT extract features from palm vein images, using the PCA to reduce the redundancy in palm vein features. The system has been trained to select high recognition features based on the wrapper model. The proposed system uses four classifiers as an objective function to determine PVI which include Support Vector Machine (SVM), K Nearest Neighbor (KNN), Decision Tree (DT) and Naïve Bayes (NB). The empirical results proved that the proposed model has the best results with SVM. Moreover, our proposed 2D-DWTPP model has been evaluated and the results show remarkable efficiency in comparison with AlexNet and other classifiers without feature selection. Experimentally, the proposed model has better accuracy as reflected by 98.65% whereas AlexNet has 63.5% accuracy and the classifier without feature selection process has 78.79% accuracy.
