31. Biometric Face Recognition: From Classical Statistics to Future Challenges
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 8/13/2013
Authors: P Jonathon Phillips, Geof H. Givens, J. Ross Beveridge, Bruce A. Draper, David Bolme, Yui M. Lui
Abstract: Automated face recognition has moved from science fiction to reality during the last twenty years. For high quality frontal face images, recognition errors have been cut in half every two years as more sophisticated algorithms are developed ...

32. Biometric Identity Assurance Services
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 12/19/2013
Author: Kevin C Mangold

33. Biometric Quality The last 1% - Biometric quality assessment for error suppression
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7544
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 4/6/2009
Authors: Elham Tabassi, Patrick J Grother
Abstract: Performance of biometric recognition systems degrades substantially as quality of the input samples drops. Although only a small fraction of input data are of poor-quality, the bulk of recognition errors can be attributed to poor-quality samples. ...

34. Biometric Specifications for Personal Identity Verification
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 800-76-2
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 7/11/2013
Authors: Patrick J Grother, Wayne J Salamon, Ramaswamy Chandramouli
Abstract: Homeland Security Presidential Directive HSPD-12, Policy for a Common Identification Standard for Federal Employees and Contractors [HSPD-12], called for new standards to be adopted governing interoperable use of identity credentials to allow physica ...

35. 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 ...

36. Biometric Technologies and Security - International Biometric Standards Development Activities
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 1/1/2011
Author: Fernando L Podio
Abstract: Biometric technologies establish or verify the personal identity of previously enrolled individuals based on biological or behavioural characteristics. Over the past several years the marketplace for biometric-based applications has widened significa ...

37. Biometric symbol design for the public - case studies in the United States and four Asian countries
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 1/18/2010
Authors: Yee-Yin Choong, Brian C Stanton, Mary Frances Theofanos
Abstract: The use of biometric systems has been expanded beyond traditional law enforcement applications to other areas such as identity management, access control, e-commerce, and even healthcare. With the deployment of biometric systems on the rise, the user ...

38. Biometrics Systems Include Users
Topic: Biometrics
Published: 12/16/2009
Authors: Mary Frances Theofanos, Ross J Micheals, Brian C Stanton
Abstract: Where do biometrics come from? The ,canonicalŠ standard (Wayman) biometric system model includes the biometric presentation and a biometric sensor but not the user themselves. Having this model facilitates having shared vocabulary and abstraction for ...
