Biometric spoofing is a method of fooling a biometric identification management system, where an artificial object is presented to the biometric scanner that imitates the unique biological properties of a person which the system is designed to measure, so that the system will not be able to distinguish the artifact from the real biological target. Therefor existing biometric technology can be enhanced with a spectroscopy method. In this paper ASD field Spec 4 Spectroradiometer device is used to overcome this problem. In this paper preprocessing including smoothing like Moving Average, Savitzky-Golay, Median Filter, and then some descriptive statistical operation carried on preprocessed palmprint data. Recognition rate of the system was calculated by using correlation coefficient and the recognition rate of the proposed system is 77. 56 %.
