1. Generalizing Face Quality and Factor Measures to Video
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 9/24/2014
Authors: Yooyoung Lee, P Jonathon Phillips, James J Filliben, J. Ross Beveridge, Hao Zhang
Abstract: Methods for assessing the impact of factors and image-quality metrics for still face images are well-understood. The extension of these factors and quality measures to faces in video has not, however, been explored. We present a specific methodology ...

2. Performance evaluation of fingerprint open-set identification algorithms
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 9/22/2014
Authors: Elham Tabassi, Craig I Watson, Gregory P Fiumara
Abstract: We report performance of one-to-many fingerprint identification algorithms using one, two, four, eight or ten fingers for recognition. Performance is quantified in terms of recognition accuracy (false positive and false negative identification rate ...

3. A Measurement Metric for Forensic Latent Fingerprint Preprocessing
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 8017
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 8/1/2014
Authors: Haiying Guan, Andrew M Dienstfrey, Mary Frances Theofanos, Brian C Stanton
Abstract: Although fingerprint mark-up and identification are well-studied fields, forensic fingerprint image preprocessing is still a relatively new domain in need of further scientific study and development of guidance of best practice. Latent fingerprint im ...

6. IREX V: Guidance for Iris Image Collection
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 8013
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 6/12/2014
Authors: George W Quinn, JAmes Matey, Elham Tabassi, Patrick J Grother
Abstract: This document provides guidance for the proper collection of iris images. Problems that occur during image acquisition can lead to poor quality samples. If the subject was looking down or blinking at the moment of capture, the image should be rejec ...

7. Identifying Face Quality and Factor Measures for Video
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 8004
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 5/21/2014
Authors: Yooyoung Lee, P Jonathon Phillips, James J Filliben, J. Ross Beveridge, Hao Zhang
Abstract: This paper identifies important factors for face recognition algorithm performance in video. The goal of this study is to understand key factors that affect algorithm performance and to characterize the algorithm performance. We evaluate four factor ...

8. Performance of Face Identification Algorithms
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 8009
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 5/21/2014
Authors: Patrick J Grother, Mei L Ngan
Abstract: This report documents performance of one-to-many face identification algorithms, and compares it with that in 2010. Performance in this context refers recognition accuracy and computational resource usage as measured by executing those algorithms ...

9. Characterization of Latent Print ,Lights-OutŠ Modes for Automated Fingerprint Identification Systems (AFIS)
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 5/1/2014
Authors: Vladimir N Dvornychenko, Stephen Bruce Meagher, Michael D Garris
Abstract: The term ,lights-outŠ for AFIS ten-print fingerprint operations has been around for many years and is generally understood to mean ,no human intervention is involved.Š But is this appropriate for AFIS latent print operations? Is it truly possible to ...
