DNA slot

From Halopedia, the Halo wiki

The DNA slot is a means of identification used by the Covenant. The DNA slot consists of a rectangular black box standing about five units high. Green light sprays out of a slot on the structure's side where an individual is supposed to place their hand. When this is done, the machine samples their tissue and compares its DNA with that on file.[1]

They are seldom used except in formal meetings between Sangheili and Prophets or other members of the High Council as to prevent any assassination attempts. When they are used, they are often guarded by a squad of Special Operations Sangheili who also must be presented with an identity disk before they are granted passage.[1]
