Todays, there are various of systems that requires high-level security methods. Due to the sophisticated methods of breaking the traditional security methods. One of the most advanced methods nowadays is handprint validation. Which is based on the features of the palm in hands. These feature could include the lines, valleys, hand texture, and other features. In this work, a survey of the latest works that are used for palm print detection and recognition
