61. 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 ...

62. 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 ...

63. 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 ...

64. 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 ...

65. 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 ...

66. Specification for WS-Biometric Devices (WS-BD)
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 500-288
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 3/14/2012
Authors: Ross J Micheals, Kevin C Mangold, Matthew L Aronoff, Kayee Kwong, Karen Marshall

67. Performance of Face Recognition Algorithms on Compressed Images
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7830
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 12/1/2011
Authors: George W Quinn, Patrick J Grother
Abstract: This report provides a comprehensive assessment of the ability of face recognition algorithms to compare compressed standard face images. Six well performing algorithms from the Multiple Biometric Evaluation (MBE) 2010 Still Face Track are us ...

68. Data Format for the Interchange of Fingerprint, Facial & Other Biometric Information ANSI/NIST-ITL 1-2011 NIST Special Publication 500-290
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 11/14/2011
Author: Bradford J Wing
Abstract: This is the 2011 update to the ANSI/NIST-ITL standard

69. Ocular and Iris Recognition Baseline Algorithm
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7828
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 11/7/2011
Authors: Yooyoung Lee, Ross J Micheals, James J Filliben, P Jonathon Phillips, Hassan A. Sahibzada
Abstract: Due to its distinctiveness, the human eye is a popular biometricv feature used to identity a person with high accuracy. The Grand Challenge in biometrics is to have an effective algorithm for subject verification or identification under a broad ...

70. Data Dependency on Measurement Uncertainties in Speaker Recognition Evaluation
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7810
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 11/3/2011
Authors: Jin Chu Wu, Alvin Martin, Craig Stuart Greenberg, Raghu N Kacker
Abstract: The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has been conducting an ongoing series of Speaker Recognition Evaluations (SRE). Speaker detection performance is measured using a detection cost function defined as a weighted sum of the proba ...
