221. 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 ...

222. 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 ...

223. 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 ...

224. 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 ...

225. 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 ...

226. Multimodal Biometrics: Issues in Design and Testing
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 11/1/2003
Authors: Robert D Snelick, Michael D Indovina, James H Yen, Alan Mink
Abstract: The results of experimental studies on multimodal biometric systems for small-scale populations have shown better performance compared to single-mode biometric systems. We examine if such techniques scale to larger populations, introduce a methodolog ...

227. Studies of Fingerprint Matching Using the NIST Verification Test Bed (VTB)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7020
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 7/1/2003
Authors: Charles L. Wilson, Craig I Watson, Michael D Garris, R. A. Hicklin
Abstract: A series of fingerprint matching studies have been conducted on an experimental laboratory system called the Verification Test Bed (VTB). The VTB is a collection of commercial off the shelf (COTS) computer hardware, an open-source operating system, ...

228. Fingerprint Interoperability Standards
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 5/1/2003
Author: R. McCabe
Abstract: The commercialization of the Automatic Fingerprint Identification System (AFIS) began in the mid 1970s with the installation of five systems at the FBI. In subsequent years, additional vendors developed competing AFISs without considering any aspec ...

229. 2003 U.S. Government Biometrics Workshop: Overview and Summary
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 4/1/2003
Authors: D M Blackburn, R Lazarick, Calvin Miles, P Jonathon Phillips, Fernando L Podio
Abstract: Overview and summary of the 2003 U.S. Government Biometrics Workshop, 9 April 2003. This document, and other associated information, can be found in the U.S. Government Biometrics Workshops area of the Biometrics Catalog, http://www.biometricscatalog ...

230. The NIST Human ID Evaluation Framework
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 6983
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 4/1/2003
Authors: Ross J Micheals, Patrick J Grother, P Jonathon Phillips
Abstract: In this paper, we investigate the utility of static anthropometric distances as a biometric for human identification. The 3D landmark data from the CAESAR database is used to form a simple biometric consisting of distances between fixed rigidly conn ...
