In this paper we propose to use fast feature extractors for contactless palmprint biometric system dedicated for mobile devices. We present texture feature extraction methods based on box functions, PCA and Matching Pursuit algorithm. Such methods should be effective and computationally robust to be deployable on mobile devices.
