1. 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 ...

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 ...

3. A 1D Spectral Image Validation/Verification Metric for Fingerprints
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7599
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 8/19/2009
Authors: John M Libert, John Donald Grantham, Shahram Orandi
Abstract: Image validation and verification are important functions in the acquisition of fingerprint images from live-scan devices and for assessing and maintaining the fidelity of fingerprint image databases. In addition to law enforcement, such databases ar ...

4. A Baseline for Assessing Biometrics Performance Robustness: A Case Study across Seven Iris Datasets
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 11/7/2013
Authors: Yooyoung Lee, James J Filliben, Ross J Micheals, Michael D Garris, P Jonathon Phillips
Abstract: We examine the robustness of algorithm performance over multiple datasets collected with different sensors. This study provide insight as to whether an algorithm performance derived from traditional controlled environment studies will robustly extrap ...

5. A Field Study of User Behavior and Perception in Smartcard Authentication
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 9/9/2011
Authors: Emile L Morse, Celeste Lyn Paul, Aiping L Zhang, Yee-Yin Choong, Mary Frances Theofanos
Abstract: A field study of 24 participants over 10 weeks explored user behavior and perception in a smartcard authentication system. Ethnographic methods used to collect data included diaries, surveys, interviews, and field observations. We observed a number o ...

6. A Grassmann Manifold-based Domain Adaptation Approach
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 11/20/2012
Authors: P Jonathon Phillips, Jingjing Zheng, Ming-Yu Liu, Rama Chellappa
Abstract: Domain adaptation algorithms that handle shifts in the distribution between training and testing data are receiving much attention in computer vision. Recently, a Grassmann manifold-based domain adaptation algorithm that models the domain shift using ...

7. 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 ...

8. A Meta-Analysis of Face Recognition Covariates
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 11/22/2010
Authors: Yui M. Lui, David Bolme, Bruce A. Draper, J. Ross Beveridge, Geof H. Givens, P Jonathon Phillips
Abstract: This paper presents a meta-analysis for covariates that affect performance of face recognition algorithms. Our review of the literature found six covariates for which multiple studies reported effects on face recognition performance. These are: a ...

9. A New Metric for Latent Fingerprint Image Preprocessing
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 6/24/2013
Authors: Mary Frances Theofanos, Andrew M Dienstfrey, Brian C Stanton, Haiying Guan
Abstract: Although fingerprint recognition is a well-studied area, forensic fingerprint preprocessing based on computational theory is still a relatively new domain in need of further scientific study and development of standards of best practice. Latent finge ...

10. 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 ...
