191. A Novel Approach to Fingerprint Image Quality
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 9/14/2005
Authors: Elham Tabassi, Charles L. Wilson
Abstract: We present a novel measure of fingerprint image quality, which can be used to estimate fingerprint match performance. This means presenting the matcher with good quality fingerprint images will result in high matcher performance, and vice versa, the ...

192. The Myth of the Goats: How Many People Have Fingerprints that are Hard to Match?
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7271
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 9/13/2005
Authors: R. A. Hicklin, Craig I Watson, Brad Ulery
Abstract: The proportion of people who have fingerprints that are particularly hard to match (also known as "Goats") is a topic of great interest in biometrics, especially for those involved in the design, development, or evaluation of fingerprint-based identi ...

193. Linear and Generalized Linear Models for Analyzing Face Recognition Performance
Report Number: 7312
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 8/17/2005
Authors: J. R. Beveridge, G. H. Givens, B Draper, P Jonathon Phillips
Abstract: This paper introduces linear models (LM), generalized linear models (GLM), and generalized linear mixed models (GLMM) for analyzing performance of face recognition algorithms. These three statistical techniques are applied to analyzing the affect of ...

194. Two Finger Matching with Vendor SDK Matchers
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7249
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 7/1/2005
Authors: Craig I Watson, Charles L. Wilson, Michael D Indovina, Brian J Cochran
Abstract: This report is an extension of the NIST Studies of one-to-one Fingerprint Matching with Vendor SDK Matchers which evaluated the accuracy of SDK (Software Development Kit) based on COTS (Commercial Off-The-Shelf) fingerprint matching systems for one-t ...

195. Nonparametric Analysis of Fingerprint Data
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7226
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 5/2/2005
Authors: Jin Chu Wu, Charles L. Wilson
Abstract: This paper demonstrates that, for large-scale tests, the match and non-match similarity scores have no specific underlying distribution function. The forms of these distribution functions require a nonparametric approach for the analysis of the fing ...

196. Personal Identity Verification (PIV) of Federal Employees and Contractors: Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 201 Approved by the Secretary of Commerce
Series: ITL Bulletin
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 3/1/2005
Author: Shirley M. Radack
Abstract: Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 201, Personal Identity Verification (PIV) of Federal Employees and Contractors, was approved by Carlos M. Guitierrez, the U.S. Secretary of Commerce, on February 25, 2005. The standard specifies a syste ...

197. Slap Fingerprint Segmentation Evaluation 2004 Analysis Report
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7209
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 3/1/2005
Authors: Brad Ulery, R. A. Hicklin, Craig I Watson, Michael D Indovina, Kayee Kwong
Abstract: The Slap Fingerprint Segmentation Evaluation 2004 (Slap Seg04) was conducted to assess the accuracy of algorithms used to segment slap fingerprint images into individual fingerprint images. Segmenters from ten different organizations were evaluated ...

198. NFIQ Compliance Test
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7300
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 2/14/2005
Author: Elham Tabassi
Abstract: In August 2004 NIST published a novel measure of fingerprint image quality, which can be used to estimate fingerprint match performance. The definition and methodology of NIST Fingerprint Image Quality (NFIQ) is documented in [1] and its implementati ...

199. Effect of Image Size and Compression on One-to-One Fingerprint Matching
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7201
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 2/1/2005
Authors: Craig I Watson, Charles L. Wilson
Abstract: NIST has conducted testing of one-to-one fingerprint matching systems to evaluate the effect of image size and compression on the accuracy of the one-to-one matching process. Images from three live-scan fingerprint scanners collected by the Departm ...
