61. Comparing Face Recognition Algorithms to Humans on Challenging Tasks
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 10/17/2012
Authors: P Jonathon Phillips, Alice O'Toole, Xiaobo An, Joseph Dunlop, Vaidehi Natu
Abstract: We compared face identifcation by humans and machines using images taken under a variety of uncontrolled illumination conditions in both indoor and outdoor settings. Natural variations in a person's day-to-day appearance (e.g., hair style, facial e ...

62. Fingerprint Self-Captures: Usability of a fingerprint system with real-time feedback
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 9/26/2012
Authors: Yee-Yin Choong, Mary Frances Theofanos, Haiying Guan
Abstract: The performance of a biometric system depends on the quality of interaction of the biometric subject and the system. Past research has shown that fingerprint image quality is improved when the subjects received feedback from the system. However, th ...

63. BioCTS 2012: Advanced Conformance Test Architectures and Test Suites for Biometric Data Interchange Formats and Biometric Information Records
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7877
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 9/14/2012
Authors: Fernando L Podio, Dylan James Yaga, Christofer Justin McGinnis
Abstract: The Computer Security Division of NIST/ITL supports the development of biometric conformance testing methodology standards and other conformity assessment efforts through active technical participation in the development of these standards and the as ...

64. Cross-View Action Recognition via a Transferable Dictionary Pair
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 9/12/2012
Authors: P Jonathon Phillips, Jingjing Zheng, Zhuolin Jiang, Rama Chellappa
Abstract: Discriminative appearance features are effective for recognizing actions in a fixed view, but generalize poorly to changes in viewpoint. We present a method for view- invariant action recognition based on sparse representations using a transferable d ...

65. Conformance Testing Methodology for ANSI/NIST-ITL 1-2011, Data Format for the Interchange of Fingerprint, Facial & Other Biometric Information (Release 1.0)
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 500-295
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 9/5/2012
Authors: Fernando L Podio, Dylan James Yaga, Christofer Justin McGinnis
Abstract: Conformance testing measures whether an implementation faithfully implements the technical requirements defined in a standard. Conformance testing provides developers, users, and purchasers with increased levels of confidence in product quality and i ...

66. 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 ...

67. ELFT-EFS Evaluation of Latent Fingerprint Technologies: Extended Feature Sets [Evaluation #2]
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
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 ...

68. 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 ...

69. 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 ...

70. 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 ...
