11. A Spectral Analytic Method for Fingerprint Image Sample Rate Estimation
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7968
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 2/25/2014
Authors: John M Libert, Shahram Orandi, John Donald Grantham, Michael D Garris
Abstract: This study examines the use of the NIST Spectral Image Validation and Verification (SIVV) metric for the application of detecting the sample rate of a given fingerprint digital image. SIVV operates by reducing an input image to a 1-dimensional po ...

12. A Taxonomy of Definitions for Usability Studies in Biometrics
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7378
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 11/27/2006
Authors: Ross J Micheals, Brian C Stanton, Mary Frances Theofanos, Shahram Orandi
Abstract: Historically, usability research strives to focus on user behavior in a manner that is as system independent as possible. Although ¿ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 37 Standing Document 2 ¿ Harmonized Biometric Vocabulary, Draft N1779¿ provides a foundation towards ...

13. ANSI/NIST-ITL 1-2011 Requirements and Conformance Test Assertions
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7806
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 9/16/2011
Authors: Christofer Justin McGinnis, Dylan James Yaga, Fernando L Podio
Abstract: The current version of the ANSI/NIST-ITL standard "Data Format for the Interchange of Fingerprint, Facial & Other Biometric Information" is specified in two parts. Part 1, ANSI/NIST-ITL 1-2007, specifies the traditional format, and Part 2, ANSI/NIST ...

14. Advances in Biometric Standardisation ‹ Addressing Global Market Requirements for Biometric Standards
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 1/1/2013
Author: Fernando L Podio
Abstract: The paper discusses the current status of biometric standards development activities, with a focus on international standards developments. Published standards, as well as standards under development or planned for the near future, are addressed. T ...

15. Ambiguously Labeled Learning Using Dictionaires
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 12/3/2014
Author: P Jonathon Phillips

16. An Automated Video-Based System For Iris Recognition
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 6/2/2009
Authors: Yooyoung Lee, P Jonathon Phillips, Ross J Micheals
Abstract: We have successfully implemented a Video-based Automated System for Iris Recognition (VASIR), evaluating its successful performance on the MBGC dataset. The proposed method facilitates the ultimate goal of automatically detecting an eye area, extract ...

17. An Empirical Study of Korean Cultural Effects on the Usability of Biometric Symbols
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 6/17/2010
Authors: Young-Bin Kwon, Yooyoung Lee, Yee-Yin Choong
Abstract: Biometrics is an umbrella term for methods that identify an individual based on physiological and/or behavioral characteristics such as fingerprint, face, iris, retina, vein, palm, voice, gait, signature, etc. The use of biometric systems is increasi ...

18. 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 ...

19. An Introduction to Biometric-completeness: The Equivalence of Matching and Quality
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 6/16/2009
Authors: P Jonathon Phillips, J. Ross Beveridge
Abstract: This paper introduces the concept of biometric-completeness. A problem is biometric-complete if solving the problem is equivalent to solving a biometric recognition problem. The concept of biometric-completeness is modeled on the informal conc ...

20. An Introduction to the Good, the Bad, & the Ugly Face Recognition Challenge Problem
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7758
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 3/10/2011
Authors: P Jonathon Phillips, J. Ross Beveridge, Bruce A. Draper, Geof H. Givens, Alice J. O'Toole, David Bolme, Joseph Dunlop, Yui M. Lui, Hassan A. Sahibzada, Samuel Weimer
Abstract: The Good, the Bad, & the Ugly Face Challenge Problem was created to encourage the development of algorithms that are robust to recognition across changes in illumination that occur in still frontal faces. The Good, the Bad, & the Ugly consists of thr ...
