The study of physical or behavioral characteristics utilized for the identification of a human being is called biometric. Dorsal hand vein biometric traits have been used for biometric identification in present manuscript. First of all, Input dorsal hand vein image is preprocessed in proposed approach. The feature is extracted from preprocessed image using Orientation of Local Binary Pattern (OLBP) in binary format. Hamming distance is used for matching of features in proposed approach. Proposed approach has been tested on dataset of 600 vein images collected from 50 people.
