BiCCL: The Biometric Client Configuration Language
Matthew L. Aronoff, Ross J. Micheals
In this paper, we introduce the Biometric Client Configuration Language, or BiCCL. BiCCL is a platform-independent, domain-specific language (DSL) that formally describes the biometric acquisition process. BiCCL uses high-level constructs---e.g., sensors , tasks , experimental conditions , and workflow ---to help users directly encode their intent. To test the expressiveness of this new DSL, we built a reference compiler that translates BiCCL directly into XML that can be consumed by the NIST Multimodal Biometric Application Resource Kit (MBARK).
