221. 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 ...

222. 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

223. 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 ...

224. 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 ...

225. 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 ...

226. 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 ...

227. Common Biometric Exchange File Format (CBEFF), Augmented
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 6529-A
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 4/15/2004
Authors: Fernando L Podio, J S Dunn, L Reinert, C J Tilton, L O'Gorman, P Collier, Mark Jerde, B Wirtz
Abstract: This report is an augmentation of the original standard, which was published as NISTIR 6529 (January 2001). Common Biometric Exchange File Format (CBEFF) describes a set of data elements necessary to support biometric technologies in a common way. T ...

228. 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 ...

229. 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 ...

230. Multimodal Biometric Authentication Methods: A COTS Approach
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 12/1/2003
Authors: Michael D Indovina, Robert D Snelick, Alan Mink
Abstract: We examine the performance of multimodal biometric authentication systems using state-of-the-art Commercial Off-the-Shelf (COTS) fingerprint and face biometrics on a population approaching 1000 individuals. Prior studies of multimodal biometrics hav ...
