151. 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 ...

153. Data Format for the Interchange of Fingerprint, Facial, & Other Biometric Information ­ Part 2: XML Version (ANSI/NIST-ITL 2-2008)
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 500-275
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 8/14/2008
Authors: Elaine M Newton, Gerry Coleman, Patrice Yuh
Abstract: This complement to the ANSI/NIST-ITL 1-2007 standard establishes an equivalent XML format. This format defines the content, format, and units of measurement for the exchange of fingerprint, palmprint, facial/mugshot, scar, mark, & tattoo (SMT), i ...

156. 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 ...

160. Latent Fingerprint Performance Modeling
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 1/14/2008
Author: Vladimir N Dvornychenko
Abstract: This paper describes aspects of work done at NIST, in concert with the latent fingerprint community, toward achieving a partial lights-out latent fingerprint processing capability. The initial steps are to quantify performance over a cross-section of ...
