231. Multimodal Biometrics: Issues in Design and Testing
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 11/1/2003
Authors: Robert D Snelick, Michael D Indovina, James H Yen, Alan Mink
Abstract: The results of experimental studies on multimodal biometric systems for small-scale populations have shown better performance compared to single-mode biometric systems. We examine if such techniques scale to larger populations, introduce a methodolog ...

232. Studies of Fingerprint Matching Using the NIST Verification Test Bed (VTB)
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7020
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 7/1/2003
Authors: Charles L. Wilson, Craig I Watson, Michael D Garris, R. A. Hicklin
Abstract: A series of fingerprint matching studies have been conducted on an experimental laboratory system called the Verification Test Bed (VTB). The VTB is a collection of commercial off the shelf (COTS) computer hardware, an open-source operating system, ...

233. Fingerprint Interoperability Standards
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 5/1/2003
Author: R. McCabe
Abstract: The commercialization of the Automatic Fingerprint Identification System (AFIS) began in the mid 1970s with the installation of five systems at the FBI. In subsequent years, additional vendors developed competing AFISs without considering any aspec ...

234. 2003 U.S. Government Biometrics Workshop: Overview and Summary
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 4/1/2003
Authors: D M Blackburn, R Lazarick, Calvin Miles, P Jonathon Phillips, Fernando L Podio
Abstract: Overview and summary of the 2003 U.S. Government Biometrics Workshop, 9 April 2003. This document, and other associated information, can be found in the U.S. Government Biometrics Workshops area of the Biometrics Catalog, http://www.biometricscatalog ...

235. The NIST Human ID Evaluation Framework
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 6983
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 4/1/2003
Authors: Ross J Micheals, Patrick J Grother, P Jonathon Phillips
Abstract: In this paper, we investigate the utility of static anthropometric distances as a biometric for human identification. The 3D landmark data from the CAESAR database is used to form a simple biometric consisting of distances between fixed rigidly conn ...

236. Biometric Standards -- A Key to a More Secure World
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 3/1/2003
Authors: Michael D Hogan, Fernando L Podio
Abstract: Biometric technologies are becoming the foundation of an array of highly secure identification and verification solutions. Over the past eighteen months, the U.S has quickly worked to establish formal standards groups for accelerating and harmonizin ...

237. Face Recognition Vendor Test 2002 Performance Metrics
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 6982
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 3/1/2003
Authors: Patrick J Grother, Ross J Micheals, P Jonathon Phillips
Abstract: We present the methodology and recognition performance characteristics used in the Face Recognition Vendor Test 2002. We refine the notion of a biometric imposter, and show that the traditional measures of identification and verification performanc ...

238. Face Recognition Vendor Test 2002: Evaluation Report
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 6965
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 3/1/2003
Authors: P Jonathon Phillips, Patrick J Grother, Ross J Micheals, D M Blackburn, Elham Tabassi, M Bone
Abstract: The Face Recognition Vendor Test (FRVT) 2002 is an independently administered technology evaluation of mature face recognition systems. FRVT 2002 provides performance measures for assessing the capability of face recognition systems to meet requirem ...

239. Spotlight - Biometric Authentication -- Are You Who You Claim To Be?
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 3/1/2003
Author: Michael D Hogan
Abstract: The recent establishment of the International Organization for Standardization/International Electrotechnical Commission Joint Technical Committee 1/Subcomittee 37 (ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 37) on Biometrics is a major development in international standardiz ...

240. Fingerprint Matching Using Distortion Tolerant Filters
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 2/13/2003
Authors: Craig I Watson, D P Casasent
Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to discuss the use of distortion tolerant filters to improve the performance of fingerprint correlation matching. Previous work has shown that correlation matching of fingerprints is susceptible to larger false alarm r ...
