Title: Summary of April 2005 ANSI/NIST Fingerprint Standard Update Workshop
Published: January 30, 2006
Abstract: This workshop was convened to chart the future of the ANSI/NIST-ITL 1-2000 fingerprint data exchange standard. This report is intended to provide a summary of that workshop. The current and future requirements and capabilities of existing stakeholders were first examined. Developments in information technology including XML were described and their potential relationship to the standard demonstrated. Approaches were presented for harmonizing this standard with other biometric standards. Additional proposals for improving the standard were introduced and a roadmap to upgrading the current version of the standard was generated.
