41. IREX VI - Temporal Stability of Iris Recognition Accuracy
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7948
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 7/11/2013
Authors: Patrick J Grother, James R Matey, Elham Tabassi, George W Quinn, Michael Chumakov
Abstract: Background: Stability is a required definitional property for a biometric to be useful. Quantitative statements of stability are operationally important as they dictate re-enrollment schedules e.g. of a face on a passport. Ophthalmologists consider ...

42. The ANSI/NIST-ITL Standard: Data Format for the Interchange of Fingerprint, Facial & Other Biometric Information
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 6/27/2013
Author: Bradford J Wing
Abstract: This is an article in the Encyclopedia of Biometrics, 2nd Edition. It covers the purpose, content and use of the ANSI/NIST-ITL standard.

43. The Challenge of Face Recognition From Digital Point-and-Shoot Cameras
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 6/25/2013
Authors: P Jonathon Phillips, J. R. Beveridge, David Bolme, Bruce A. Draper, G. H. Givens, Yui M. Lui, Hao Zhang, W T. Scruggs, Kevin W. Bowyer, Patrick J. Flynn, Su Lan Cheng
Abstract: Face recognition is appearing in personal and commercial products at an astonishing rate, yet reliable face recognition remains challenging. Users expect a lot; they want to snap pictures and have their friends, family and acquaintances recognized. T ...

44. A New Metric for Latent Fingerprint Image Preprocessing
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 6/24/2013
Authors: Mary Frances Theofanos, Andrew M Dienstfrey, Brian C Stanton, Haiying Guan
Abstract: Although fingerprint recognition is a well-studied area, forensic fingerprint preprocessing based on computational theory is still a relatively new domain in need of further scientific study and development of standards of best practice. Latent finge ...

45. Requirements and Conformance Test Assertions for ANSI/NIST-ITL 1-2011 Record Type 18 - DNA Record
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7933
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 6/21/2013
Authors: Fernando L Podio, Dylan James Yaga, Christofer Justin McGinnis
Abstract: The Computer Security Division (CSD) of NIST/ITL develops conformance test architectures (CTAs) and test suites (CTSs) to support users that require conformance to selected biometric standards. Product developers as well as testing laboratories c ...

46. Incorporating Biometric Software Development Kits into the Development Process
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7929
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 5/9/2013
Authors: Karen Marshall, Ross J Micheals, Kevin C Mangold, Kayee Kwong
Abstract: Biometric devices have emerged as pervasive and indispensable tools in facilitating security in many industries and governments worldwide,the use of these devices has consistently increased and advanced. However, advancement of the methodologies ...

47. Video-based Face Recognition via Joint Sparse Representation
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 4/26/2013
Authors: P Jonathon Phillips, Yi-Chen Chen, Vishal M Patel, Sumit Shekar, Rama Chellappa
Abstract: In video-based face recognition, a key challenge is in exploiting the extra information available in a video; e.g., face, body, and motion identity cues. In addition, different video sequences of the same subject may contain variations in resolution, ...

48. VASIR: An Open-Source Research Platform for Advanced Iris Recognition Technologies
Series: Journal of Research (NIST JRES)
Report Number: 118.011
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 4/22/2013
Authors: Yooyoung Lee, Ross J Micheals, James J Filliben, P Jonathon Phillips
Abstract: The performance of iris recognition systems is frequently affected by input image quality, which in turn is vulnerable to less-than-optimal conditions due to illuminations, environments, and subject characteristics (e.g., distance, movement, face ...

49. Camera Recognition
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7921
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 3/26/2013
Authors: Michelle Potts Steves, Brian C Stanton, Mary Frances Theofanos, Dana E. Chisnell, Hannah Wald
Abstract: The Department of Homeland Security‰s (DHS) United States Visitor and Immigrant Status Indicator Technology (US-VISIT) program is a biometrically-enhanced identification system primarily situated at border points of entry such as airports and sea ...

50. Sensitivity Analysis for Biometric Systems: A Methodology Based on Orthogonal Experiment Designs
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 3/4/2013
Authors: Yooyoung Lee, James J Filliben, Ross J Micheals, P Jonathon Phillips
Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to introduce an effective and structured methodology for carrying out a biometric system sensitivity analysis. The goal of sensitivity analysis is to provide the researcher/developer with the insight and understanding of ...
