1. A Measurement Metric for Forensic Latent Fingerprint Preprocessing
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 8017
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 8/1/2014
Authors: Haiying Guan, Andrew M Dienstfrey, Mary Frances Theofanos, Brian C Stanton
Abstract: Although fingerprint mark-up and identification are well-studied fields, forensic fingerprint image preprocessing is still a relatively new domain in need of further scientific study and development of guidance of best practice. Latent fingerprint im ...

2. Design and Testing of a Mobile Touchscreen Interface for Multi-Modal Biometric Capture
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 8003
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 8/1/2014
Authors: Kristen Greene, Ross J Micheals, Kayee Kwong, Gregory P Fiumara
Abstract: In this report, we describe in detail the design and usability testing of a touchscreen interface for multimodal biometric capture, an application called WSABI, Web Services for the Acquisition of Biometric Information. The application code is publ ...

3. Incorporating Biometric Software Development Kits into the Development Process
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7929, Rev 1
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 8/1/2014
Authors: Karen Marshall, Ross J Micheals, Kevin C Mangold, Kayee Kwong
Abstract: Biometric devices have emerged as pervasive and indispensable tools in facilitating security in many industries and governments worldwide�. The use of these devices has consistently increased and advanced. However, advancement of the methodolo ...

4. IREX V: Guidance for Iris Image Collection
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 8013
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 6/12/2014
Authors: George W Quinn, JAmes Matey, Patrick J Grother
Abstract: This document provides guidance for the proper collection of iris images. Problems that occur during image acquisition can lead to poor quality samples. If the subject was looking down or blinking at the moment of capture, the image should be rejec ...

5. Identifying Face Quality and Factor Measures for Video
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 8004
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 5/21/2014
Authors: Yooyoung Lee, P Jonathon Phillips, James J Filliben, J. Ross Beveridge, Hao Zhang
Abstract: This paper identifies important factors for face recognition algorithm performance in video. The goal of this study is to understand key factors that affect algorithm performance and to characterize the algorithm performance. We evaluate four factor ...

6. Performance of Face Identification Algorithms
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 8009
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 5/21/2014
Authors: Patrick J Grother, Mei L Ngan
Abstract: This report documents performance of one-to-many face identification algorithms, and compares it with that in 2010. Performance in this context refers recognition accuracy and computational resource usage as measured by executing those algorithms ...

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 ...

8. Human Engineering Design Criteria Standards Part 3: Interim Steps
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7990
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 4/1/2014
Authors: Susanne M Furman, Mary Frances Theofanos, Hannah Wald
Abstract: The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) requires general human systems integration (HSI) criteria for the design and development of human-machine interfaces for the technology, systems, equipment, and facilities employed by its user population. ...

9. Examination of the Impact of Fingerprint Spatial Area Loss on Matcher Performance in Various Mobile Identification Scenarios
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7950
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 3/24/2014
Authors: Shahram Orandi, Kenneth Ko, Stephen S Wood, John Donald Grantham, Michael D Garris
Abstract: Background: NIST conducted a study of the FBI Repository for Individuals of Special Concern (RISC) system using various gallery and Mobile ID [MOBID] acquisition profile combinations to examine performance characteristics of the various profiles in t ...

10. Face Recognition Vendor Test (FRVT) - Performance of Automated Age Estimation Algorithms
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7995
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 3/20/2014
Authors: Mei L Ngan, Patrick J Grother
Abstract: Facial Age Estimation is an area of study new to the Face Recognition Vendor Test (FRVT) Still Track. While peripheral to traditional face recognition, it has become a growing area of research given its potential use in commercial and biometric app ...
