WELCOME TO THE INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY LABORATORY
The Information Technology Laboratory (ITL), one of seven research laboratories within the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), is a measurement and testing laboratory encompassing a wide range of areas of computer science, mathematics, statistics, and systems engineering. ITL collaborates with other NIST laboratories, the Department of Commerce, government agencies, the private sector, standards development organizations, and other national and international stakeholders to develop and implement standards, tests, and metrics. The standards and metrics developed help make information systems more secure, usable, interoperable, and reliable. The resulting measurement and standards infrastructure accelerates innovation in IT and IT-related measurement science, which drive progress across scientific, technology, and commercial applications.
Fingerprint Scanner Angle Manipulation Device
The NIST Library recently added a new exhibit, courtesy of the Information Technology Laboratory's Biometrics Usability team. The Fingerprint Scanner Angle Manipulation Device was designed in 2008 to test the usability of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's (DHS) fingerprint scanners when placed at various angles.
