171. International biometric standards ¿ Worldwide impact on personal authentication applications
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 9/2/2007
Author: Fernando L Podio
Abstract: Biometric technologies are able to establish or verify personal identity against previously enrolled individuals. The importance of these technologies has dramatically increased. Homeland defense is now the highest of priorities for many countries. T ...

172. Meta-Analysis of Third-Party Evaluations of Iris Recognition
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7440
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 8/24/2007
Authors: Elaine M Newton, P Jonathon Phillips
Abstract: Iris recognition has long been widely regarded as a highly accurate biometric, despite the lack of independent, large-scale testing of its performance. Recently, however, three third-party evaluations of iris recognition were performed. This paper co ...

173. MINEX II - Performance of Fingerprint Match-on-Card Algorithms - Evaluation Plan
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7485
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 8/15/2007
Authors: Patrick J Grother, Wayne J Salamon
Abstract: The MINEX II evaluation plan instantiates a complete mechanism for the measure of speed and the core algorithmic capabilities of fingerprint matching algorithms running on standardized ISO/IEC 7816 smart cards. The document includes an ISO 9899 " ...

174. Concepts of Operations (CONOPS) for the Evaluation of Latent Fingerprint Technologies (ELFT)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 6/12/2007
Authors: Vladimir N Dvornychenko, Brian J Cochran, Patrick J Grother, Michael D Indovina, Craig I Watson
Abstract: The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is conducting a series of tests for evaluating the state of the art in Automated Latent Fingerprint matching. The intent of the testing is to quantify the core algorithmic capability of contem ...

175. Quality Summarization, Recommendations on Biometric Quality Summarization across the Application Domain
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7422
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 5/3/2007
Authors: Elham Tabassi, Patrick J Grother
Abstract: This document is a set of recommendations to users of biometric quality assessment algorithms. In particular it is concerned with aggregation of quality values across an enterprise appropriate to quantify estimated relative error rates.

176. Data Format for the Interchange of Fingerprint, Facial, & Other Biometric Information (ANSI/NIST-ITL 1-2007)
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 500-271
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 5/1/2007
Authors: R. McCabe, Elaine M Newton
Abstract: Defines the content, format, and units of measurement for the exchange of fingerprint, palmprint, facial/mugshot, scar, mark, & tattoo (SMT), iris, and other biometric sample information that may be used in the identification or verification process ...

177. Performance of Biometric Quality Measures
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 4/16/2007
Authors: Patrick J Grother, Elham Tabassi
Abstract: We document methods for the quantitative evaluation of systems that produce a scalar summary of a biometric sample¿s quality. We predicate this on the idea that the quality measure predicts performance, whether by design or correlation. We do this ab ...

178. Face Recognition Vendor Test 2006 and Iris Challenge Evaluation 2006 Large-Scale Results
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7408
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 3/29/2007
Authors: P Jonathon Phillips, K W Bowyer, P J Flynn, Alice J. O'Toole, W T. Scruggs, Cathy L. Schott, Matthew Sharpe
Abstract: The Face Recognition Vendor Test (FRVT) 2006 and Iris Challenge Evaluation (ICE) 2006 are independent U.S. Government evaluations of face and iris recognition performance. These evaluations were conducted simultaneously at NIST using the same test in ...

179. Comment on the CASIA v1 Iris Dataset
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 3/26/2007
Authors: P Jonathon Phillips, K W Bowyer, P J Flynn
Abstract: The paper by Ma et al. [1] made a number of contributions to iris recognition including a novel iris recognition algorithm, a benchmark of standard approaches to iris recognition, and the establishment of an iris data set. The data set, Chinese Acade ...

180. User's Guide to NIST Biometric Image Software (NBIS)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7392
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 1/21/2007
Author: Kenneth Ko
Abstract: This document (User's Guide to NIST Biometric Image Software (NBIS)) is renamed from the User's Guide to NIST Fingerprint Image Software (NFIS). In other word, this document is a replacement for the User's Guide to NIST Fingerprint Image software (NF ...
