Biometric Standards -- A Key to a More Secure World
Michael D. Hogan, Fernando L. Podio
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 harmonizing the development of national and international biometric standards of high relevance to the U.S. The work of these new groups, the InterNational Committee for Information Technology Standards (INCITS) Technical Committee M1 on Biometrics and the International Organization for Standardization/International Electrotechnical Commission Joint Technical Committee 1/Subcommittee 37(ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 37) on Biometrics, and others is described.
