5. Conformance Testing Methodologies for Biometric Data Interchange Formats, Standardization of
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 4/30/2015
Authors: Dylan James Yaga, John Campbell, Gregory Zekster
Abstract: Conformance testing is the method that is used to determine if a product, process or system (known as an implementation under test) satisfies the requirements specified in the base standard. The goal of conformance testing is to capture enough of the ...

6. Tattoo Recognition Technology - Challenge (Tatt-C): An Open Tattoo Database for Developing Tattoo Recognition Research
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 3/31/2015
Authors: Mei L Ngan, Patrick J Grother
Abstract: Tattoos have been used for many years to assist law enforcement in investigations leading to the identification of criminals and victims. While tattoos lack the distinctiveness and permanence characteristics of a primary biometric trait, it is an e ...

7. Characterization of Latent Print ,Lights-OutŠ Modes for Automated Fingerprint Identification Systems (AFIS)
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 5/1/2014
Authors: Vladimir N Dvornychenko, Stephen Bruce Meagher, Michael D Garris
Abstract: The term ,lights-outŠ for AFIS ten-print fingerprint operations has been around for many years and is generally understood to mean ,no human intervention is involved.Š But is this appropriate for AFIS latent print operations? Is it truly possible to ...

9. A Spectral Analytic Method for Fingerprint Image Sample Rate Estimation
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7968
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 2/25/2014
Authors: John M Libert, Shahram Orandi, John Donald Grantham, Michael D Garris
Abstract: This study examines the use of the NIST Spectral Image Validation and Verification (SIVV) metric for the application of detecting the sample rate of a given fingerprint digital image. SIVV operates by reducing an input image to a 1-dimensional po ...

10. The neural representation of faces and bodies in motion and at rest
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 1/29/2014
Authors: P Jonathon Phillips, Alice O'Toole, Vaidehi Natu, Xiaobo An, Rice Allyson, James Ryland
Abstract: The neural organization of person processing relies on brain regions functionally selective for faces or bodies, with a subset of these regions preferring moving stimuli. Although the response properties of the individual areas are well established, ...
