61. An Exploration of the Operational Ramifications of Lossless Compression of 1000 ppi Fingerprint Imagery
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7779
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 8/6/2012
Authors: Shahram Orandi, John M Libert, John Donald Grantham, Kenneth Ko, Stephen S Wood, Jin Chu Wu, Lindsay M. Petersen, Bruce Bandini
Abstract: This paper presents the findings of a study initially conducted to measure the operational impact of JPEG 2000 lossy compression on 1000 ppi fingerprint imagery at various levels of compression, but later expanded to include lossless compression. Los ...

Report Number: 7859
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 6/4/2012
Authors: Michael D Indovina, Vladimir N Dvornychenko, R. A. Hicklin, G I Kiebuzinski
Abstract: The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Evaluation of Latent Fingerprint Technologies - Extended Feature Sets (ELFT-EFS) consists of multiple ongoing latent algorithm evaluations. This report describes the results and conclusions ...

63. The ANSI/NIST-ITL Standard Update for 2011 (Data Format for the Interchange of Fingerprint, Facial & Other Biometric Information)
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 6/4/2012
Author: Bradford J Wing
Abstract: This article describes the ANSI/NIST-ITL standard: its origin, contents, and how it is used and updated. It is the principal standard used for the formatting and encoding of biometric data and related textual information for law enforcement, homeland ...

64. Sensitivity Analysis for Biometric Systems: A Methodology Based on Orthogonal Experiment Designs
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7855
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 5/17/2012
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 ...

65. Comparison of the WSQ and JPEG 2000 Image Compression Algorithms On 500 ppi Fingerprint Imagery
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7781
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 4/23/2012
Authors: John M Libert, Shahram Orandi, John Donald Grantham
Abstract: This paper presents the findings of a study conducted to compare the effects of WSQ and JPEG 2000 compression on 500 ppi fingerprint imagery at a typical operational compression rate of 0.55 bpp (bits per pixel), corresponding to an effective compres ...

66. IREX III Supplement 1: Failure Analysis
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7853
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 4/18/2012
Authors: George W Quinn, Patrick J Grother
Abstract: Iris recognition has the potential to be extremely accurate, but it is highly dependent on the quality of the input data. Iris occlusion, off-axis gaze, blurred images, and iris rotation are common problems that can make recognizing individuals m ...

67. IREX III - Performance of Iris Identification Algorithms
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7836
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 4/3/2012
Authors: Patrick J Grother, George W Quinn, James R Matey, Mei L Ngan, Wayne J Salamon, Gregory P Fiumara, Craig I Watson
Abstract: Iris recognition has long been held as an accurate and fast biometric. In the first public evaluation of one-to-many iris identification technologies, this third activity in the Iris Exchange (IREX) program has measured the core algorithmic effi ...

68. Criteria Towards Metrics for Benchmarking Template Protection Algorithms
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 3/30/2012
Authors: Koen Simoens, Bian Yang, Xuebing Zhou, Filipe Beato, Christoph Busch, Elaine M Newton, Bart Preneel
Abstract: Traditional criteria used in biometric performance evaluation do not cover all the performance aspects of biometric template protection (BTP) and the lack of well-defined metrics inhibits the proper evaluation of such methods. Previous work in ...
