161. 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 ...

162. Usability Testing of Height and Angles of Ten-Print Fingerprint Capture
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7504
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 5/11/2008
Authors: Mary Frances Theofanos, Brian C Stanton, Charles L Sheppard, Ross J Micheals, John W. Wydler II, Nien F Zhang, Lawrence Nadel, William Rubin
Abstract: As the deployment of biometric technologies such as fingerprints has become more widespread in government applications there is an increased awareness of the human-computer interaction that such technologies involve. User behavior can impact operatio ...

163. Infrastructure System Design Methodology for Smart ID Cards Deployment
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 4/19/2008
Author: Ramaswamy Chandramouli
Abstract: With the increasing use of smart cards for identity verification of individuals, it has become imperative for organizations to properly design and engineer the expensive infrastructure system that supports smart card deployment. Apart from sound syst ...

164. Overcoming Impediments to Cell Phone Forensics
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 1/16/2008
Authors: Wayne Jansen, Aurelien Michel Dominique Delaitre, Ludovic Moenner
Abstract: Cell phones are an emerging but rapidly growing area of computer forensics. While cell phones are becoming more like desktop computers functionally, their organization and operation are quite different in certain areas. For example, most cell phones ...

165. 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 ...

166. Smart Cards for Mobile Devices
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 12/3/2007
Authors: Wayne Jansen, Serban Ilie Gavrila, Clement Seveillac
Abstract: While mobile handheld devices provide productivity benefits, they also pose new risks. User authentication is the best safeguard against the risk of unauthorised use and access to a device¿s contents. This paper describes two novel types of Smart Car ...

167. Secure Biometric Match-on-Card Feasibility Report
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7452
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 11/30/2007
Authors: David A Cooper, Trung-Hung Dang, Philip Lee, William I. MacGregor, Ketan Mehta
Abstract: FIPS 201, "Personal Identity Verification (PIV) of Federal Employees and Contractors," and its associated special publications define a method to perform biometric match-off-card authentication of a PIV cardholder when the PIV card is inserted into ...

168. Reference Material for Assessing Forensic SIM Tools
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 10/1/2007
Authors: Wayne Jansen, Aurelien Michel Dominique Delaitre
Abstract: Subscriber Identity Modules (SIMs) are a fundamental standardized component of most cell phones used worldwide. A SIM can be removed from a phone handset and inserted into another, allowing users to port identity, personal information, and service be ...

169. Conformance Test Suite Implementations for Common Biometric Exchange Format Framework (CBEFF) Data Structures
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 9/7/2007
Authors: Yooyoung Lee, Fernando L Podio, Mark Jerde
Abstract: Biometric technologies are able to establish or verify personal identity against previously enrolled individuals. Used alone, or together with other authentication technologies such as tokens and passwords, they can provide higher degrees of security ...

170. Studies of Operational Measurement of ROC Curve on Large Fingerprint Data Sets Using Two-Sample Bootstrap
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7449
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 9/4/2007
Author: Jin Chu Wu
Abstract: From the operational perspective, for large-size fingerprint data, a receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curve is usually measured by the true accept rate (TAR) of the genuine scores given a specified false accept rate (FAR) of the impostor score ...
