GMAT Security: Palm Vein Biometric Authentication


Graduate Management Admission Test, or GMAT, will have their palms scanned to capture the test-taker’s unique “palm vein pattern.”

The palm-scanning device captures an image of the blood coursing through test-takers’ veins. Each person has a unique “palm-vein” image. A student whom a business school official suspects of acting fraudulently could be asked to have their palm scanned, and that image could be checked against the image the student provided for the GMAT, according to David Wilson, president of the Graduate Management Admission Council.
