Published

Author(s)

Fernando L. Podio, J S. Dunn

Abstract

This paper defines biometrics technologies and states that these technologies are ideally suited to provide highly secure identification and personal verification solutions. The benefit of biometric standards to the end-users, the Enterprise and the global economy is discussed as well as how biometric industry standards will affect identification and verification security applications. The evolution and emergence of Biometric Application Programming Interfaces is addressed with special emphasis on the BioAPI Consortium and BioAPI's specification. NIST's research efforts in biometric interoperability and NIST's BioAPI test bed is described.
