213. 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 ...

214. 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 ...

216. 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 ...
