171. Biometric Data Specification for Personal Identity Verification
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 800-76-1
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 1/17/2007
Authors: Charles L. Wilson, Patrick J Grother, Ramaswamy Chandramouli
Abstract: This document, Special Publication 800-76, is a companion document to FIPS 201, Personal Identity Verification (PIV) of Federal Employees and Contractors. It describes technical acquisition and formatting specifications for the biometric credentials ...

172. Nonparametric Statistical Data Analysis of Fingerprint Minutiae Exchange with Two-Finger Fusion
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7376
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 12/1/2006
Authors: Jin Chu Wu, Michael D Garris
Abstract: A nonparametric inferential statistical data analysis is presented. The utility of this method is demonstrated through analyzing results from minutiae exchange with two-finger fusion. High-accuracy vendors are selected and mean error rates are compar ...

173. A Taxonomy of Definitions for Usability Studies in Biometrics
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7378
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 11/27/2006
Authors: Ross J Micheals, Brian C Stanton, Mary Frances Theofanos, Shahram Orandi
Abstract: Historically, usability research strives to focus on user behavior in a manner that is as system independent as possible. Although ¿ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 37 Standing Document 2 ¿ Harmonized Biometric Vocabulary, Draft N1779¿ provides a foundation towards ...

174. Summary of Latent Fingerprint work at NIST
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7377
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 11/20/2006
Authors: Vladimir N Dvornychenko, Michael D Garris
Abstract: This paper describes past and present fingerprint activity at NIST. While the primary focus is on latent fingerprints, the paper also surveys relevant general biometrics activity. The central focus of the paper is on the Latent Testing Workshop, held ...

175. Recognition Problem in Biometric Data Studies: Nonparametric Dependence Characteristics and Aggregated Algorithms
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 9/14/2006
Author: Andrew L Rukhin
Abstract: Biometric systems designed to detect or verify a persons identity are widely used in homeland security. A variety of commercially available biometric systems are now in existence; current technological progress makes it possible to evaluate these sy ...

176. Smart Card Authentication for Mobile Devices
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 9/1/2006
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 unauthorized use and access to a device¿s contents. This paper describes two novel types of smart car ...

177. Personal Identity Verification Demonstration Summary
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7337
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 8/31/2006
Authors: Erika McCallister, Hildegard Ferraiolo
Abstract: This paper provides a summary of the NIST Personal Identity Verification (PIV) Demonstration. The PIV Demonstration took place from May 15 to June 14, 2006. Forty-four companies voluntarily participated through a Cooperative Research and Development ...

178. Correlation Filters for Elastic-Distorted Live-Scan Fingerprint Recognition
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 6990
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 8/15/2006
Authors: D P Casasent, Craig I Watson
Abstract: This is a summary of a multi-year study of the use of distortion-invariant filters for recognition of live-scan dab fingerprints with elastic distortions. These fingerprints are characterized by elastic distortions. NIST special database 24 is used; ...

179. NIST SP 800-85B: PIV Data Model Test Guidelines
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 800-85
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 7/31/2006
Authors: Ramaswamy Chandramouli, Ketan Mehta, Pius A Uzamere, Davie Simon, Nabil Ghadiali, Andrew P Founds
Abstract: In order to build the necessary PIV infrastructure to support common unified processes and government-wide use of identity credentials, NIST developed this test guidance document that ensures interoperability of PIV data. This document provides test ...

180. When to Fuse Two Biometrics?
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 6/13/2006
Authors: Elham Tabassi, Patrick J Grother, George W Quinn
Abstract: Biometric fusion, acquisition and combination of multiple pieces of evidence of identity, can achieve higher accuracy of biometric recognition than using a single biometric. However, fusion increases the cost or throughput of the system since it requ ...
