152. Slap Fingerprint Segmentation Evaluation II - Procedures and Results
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7553
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 1/12/2009
Author: Craig I Watson
Abstract: In 2004, NIST conducted a fingerprint slap segmentation study [1] to assess the state-of-the-art in fingerprint segmentation technology. Given the development of new technology it has become necessary to reassess the current state-of-the-art of segm ...

153. BiCCL: The Biometric Client Configuration Language
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7531
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 10/1/2008
Authors: Matthew L Aronoff, Ross J Micheals
Abstract: In this paper, we introduce the Biometric Client Configuration Language, or BiCCL. BiCCL is a platform-independent, domain-specific language (DSL) that formally describes the biometric acquisition process. BiCCL uses high-level constructs---e.g., se ...

155. Assessing Face Acquisition
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7540
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 9/15/2008
Authors: Mary Frances Theofanos, Brian C Stanton, Charles L Sheppard, Ross J Micheals, John M Libert, Shahram Orandi
Abstract: The requirements necessary for taking a successful face picture are arguably the least constrained of any biometric. The camera must be operational, and the subject must be illuminated sufficiently and facing the camera. Yet, a significant portion of ...

160. Subspace Linear Discriminant Analysis for Face Recognition
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 6/10/2008
Authors: W Zhao, R Chellappa, P Jonathon Phillips
Abstract: In this correspondence, we describe a holistic face recognition method based on subspace Linear Discriminant Analysis (LDA). Like existing methods, this method consists of two steps: first, the face image is projected into a face subspace via Princi ...
