DIGITAL JUSTICE CORP:
SECURITY HAND SCANNER

The standardized locking mechanism for portal security is the ubiquitous hand scanner. Authorized personnel (usually residents or employees) have their biometric information coded into the areas (or domicile) to which they are to have access.

Advanced models integrate molecular scanners capable of assessing the DNA of the individual on contact with the hand pad in addition to the actual print. Such technology and processing power make these units expensive and reserved for use in higher security domains. Rumors exist of a model built specifically for Level One and Two shareholder access that will deliver a massive shock to anyone who might try their luck accessing a high security zone.

“Scan fraud” is very much frowned upon and carries mandatory prison sentences.
