Exploring the Methodology and Utility of Standardized Latent Fingerprint Matcher Scoring

Published

Author(s)

Abstract

Explores methods for defining a standardized matcher score for Automated Fingerprint Identification Systems (AFIS). A standardized score facilitates evaluating candidate lists from AFIS, and decreases the burden on the human expert. Such scoring will also assist candidate list reduction and multi-matcher fusion. The report examines six algorithms for computing a standardized score. These range form simple to quite complex.
