One of the major outcomes of this effort will be clear, robust, tested, sufficient and implementable Biometric Data Exchange Format, Biometric Sample Quality, and Conformance Testing Methodologies standards that reflect the operational needs of U.S. government, particularly DHS US VISIT, TSA registered traveler program, PIV and international e-passport. This project will also develop open source reference implementation, standard reference dataset(s) and technical reports/guidance.Also, by enabling and encouraging the use of standardized interfaces with the use of smart cards, the reliability, security, and usability of identity credentials will increase. This helps to lead to better security, and potentially to better anti-identity theft measures in the long run.
