In August 2004 NIST published a novel measure of fingerprint image quality, which can be used to estimate fingerprint match performance. The definition and methodology of NIST Fingerprint Image Quality (NFIQ) is documented in [1] and its implementation is publicly available; but subject to US export control laws; as part of NIST Fingerprint Image Software 2 (NFIS2) distribution [2]. This document provides a conformance test of an installation of NFIQ from NFIS2 to NFIQ that was developed, tested and published by NIST in August 2004.
