201. Biometric Data Specification for Personal Identity Verification
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 800-76
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 1/1/2005
Authors: Charles L. Wilson, Patrick J Grother, Ramaswamy Chandramouli
Abstract: The Homeland Security Presidential Directive HSPD-12 called for new standards to be adopted governing the interoperable use of identity credentials to allow physical and logical access to Federal government locations and systems. The Personal Ident ...

202. Matching Performance for the US-Visit IDENT System Using Flat Fingerprints
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7110
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 11/29/2004
Authors: Charles L. Wilson, Michael D Garris, Craig I Watson
Abstract: This report discusses the flat to flat matching performance of the US-VISIT fingerprint matching system. Both one-to-many matching used to detect duplicate visa enrollments and one-to-one matching used to verify the identity of the visa holder are d ...

203. Is the Urn Well-Mixed? Uncovering False Cofactor Homogeneity Assumption in Evaluation
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7156
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 10/1/2004
Authors: Ross J Micheals, T E Boult
Abstract: Measuring system performance is conceptually straightforward; it is the interpretation of the results and their use as predictors of future performance that are the exceptional challenges in system evaluation and the experimentation in general. Good ...

204. Studies of Plain-to-Rolled Fingerprint Matching Using the NIST Algorithmic Test Bed (ATB)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7112
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 9/27/2004
Authors: Stephen S Wood, Charles L. Wilson

205. Fingerprint Vendor Technology Evaluation 2003: Summary of Results and Analysis Report
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7123
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 6/30/2004
Authors: Charles L. Wilson, Patrick J Grother, Ross J Micheals, S C. Otto, Craig I Watson, R. A. Hicklin, H Korves, Brad Ulery, M Zoepfl
Abstract: The Fingerprint Vendor Technology Evaluation (FpVTE) 2003 was conducted to evaluate the accuracy of fingerprint matching, identification, and verification systems. The FpVTE is one of the tests that NIST has conducted in order to fulfill part of its ...

206. Studies of One-to-One Fingerprint Matching With Vendor SDK Matchers
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7221
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 6/24/2004
Authors: Craig I Watson, Charles L. Wilson, Karen Marshall, Michael D Indovina, Robert D Snelick
Abstract: NIST has conducted testing of one-to-one SDK (Software Development Kit) based COTS fingerprint matching systems to evaluate the accuracy of one-to-one matching used in the US-VISIT program. Fingerprint matching systems from eight vendors not used in ...

207. Face Recognition using 3D Facial Shape and Color Map Information: Comparison and Combination
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 4/30/2004
Authors: Afzal A Godil, Sanford P Ressler, Patrick J Grother
Abstract: In this paper, we investigate the use of 3D surface geometry for face recognition and compare it to one based on color map information. The 3D surface and color map data are from the CAESAR anthropometric database. We find that the recognition perfor ...

208. Studies of Biometric Fusion Executive Summary
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7346
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 4/19/2004
Authors: Craig I Watson, Brad Ulery, R. A. Hicklin, William Fellner, P Halinan
Abstract: This is an evaluation of different score-level fusion techniques, and the results of a variety of fusion experiments using face and fingerprint data from 187,000 individuals, with matcher scores from three fingerprint and three face recognition syste ...

209. Fingerprint Image Qualitiy
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7151
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 4/14/2004
Authors: Elham Tabassi, Charles Wilson, Craig I Watson
Abstract: In this report, we propose a new definition of quality of fingerprint impressions and present detailed algorithms to measure image quality for fingerprints. We define fingerprint image quality as a predictor of matcher performance before a matcher ...

210. Face Recognition Vendor Test 2002 Supplemental Report
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7083
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 2/1/2004
Author: Patrick J Grother
Abstract: Further analyses of the systems tested in the Face Recognition Vendor Test 2002 are reported. These supplement those covered in the primary Evaluation Report of March 2003. Specifically this report is intended to appeal to a more specialized audien ...
