201. Personal Identity Verification Card Management Report
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7284
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 1/6/2006
Authors: James F Dray Jr, David Corcoran
Abstract: NIST Special Publication 800-73 ( provides technical specifications for Personal Identity Verification (PIV) cards. However, it does not contain a complete card management specification for PIV systems. This Report provides an ove ...

202. Using Chebyshev's Inequality to Determine Sample Size in Biometric Evaluation of Fingerprint Data
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7273
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 11/1/2005
Authors: Jin Chu Wu, Charles L. Wilson
Abstract: For fingerprint dataset, which in many cases may exceed a million samples, the underlying distribution function with respect to similarity scores is unknown. The size of biometric evaluation test sample in these cases is an important question. In thi ...

203. Codes for the Identification of Federal and Federally Assisted Organizations Version 1.0 (NIST SP 800-87 v1.0)
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 800-87 1.0
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 10/14/2005
Authors: William C Barker, Hildegard Ferraiolo
Abstract: [Superseded by SP 800-87 v1.0(January 2005):] The Homeland Security Presidential Directive HSPD-12 called for new standards to be adopted governing the interoperable use of identity ...

204. Face Recognition Based on Frontal Views Generated from Non-Frontal Images
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 10/1/2005
Authors: V Blanz, Patrick J Grother, P Jonathon Phillips, T Vetter
Abstract: This paper presents a method for face recognition across large changes in viewpoint. Our method is based on a Morphable Model of 3D faces that represents face-specific information extracted from a dataset of 3D scans. For non-frontal face recogniti ...

205. Overview of the Face Recognition Grand Challenge
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 10/1/2005
Authors: P Jonathon Phillips, P J Flynn, W T. Scruggs, K W Bowyer, J S Chang, K Hoffman, J Marques, J Min, W Worek
Abstract: Over the last couple of years, face recognition researchers have been developing new techniques, such as recognition from three-dimensional and high resolution imagery. These developments are being fueled by advances in computer vision techniques, c ...

206. Privacy Operating Characteristic for Privacy Protection in Surveillance Applications
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 10/1/2005
Author: P Jonathon Phillips
Abstract: With the mass deploy of cameras, concern has risen about protecting a person's privacy as he goes about his daily life. Many of the cameras are installed to perform surveillance tasks that do not require the identity of a person. In the context of s ...

207. A Novel Approach to Fingerprint Image Quality
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 9/14/2005
Authors: Elham Tabassi, Charles L. Wilson
Abstract: We present a novel measure of fingerprint image quality, which can be used to estimate fingerprint match performance. This means presenting the matcher with good quality fingerprint images will result in high matcher performance, and vice versa, the ...

208. The Myth of the Goats: How Many People Have Fingerprints that are Hard to Match?
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7271
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 9/13/2005
Authors: R. A. Hicklin, Craig I Watson, Brad Ulery
Abstract: The proportion of people who have fingerprints that are particularly hard to match (also known as "Goats") is a topic of great interest in biometrics, especially for those involved in the design, development, or evaluation of fingerprint-based identi ...

209. Linear and Generalized Linear Models for Analyzing Face Recognition Performance
Report Number: 7312
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 8/17/2005
Authors: J. Ross Beveridge, Geof H. Givens, Bruce A. Draper, P Jonathon Phillips
Abstract: This paper introduces linear models (LM), generalized linear models (GLM), and generalized linear mixed models (GLMM) for analyzing performance of face recognition algorithms. These three statistical techniques are applied to analyzing the affect of ...

210. Guidelines for the Certification and Accreditation of PIV Card Issuing Organizations
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 800-79
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 7/1/2005
Authors: Dennis Keith Branstad, Alicia Clay Jones, Joan Hash
Abstract: [Superseded by SP 800-79-1 (June 2008):] Homeland Security Presidential Directive 12 (HSPD-12) established a policy for all Federal departments and agencies to create and use a gover ...
