Abstract

NIST Special Database 24 contains MPEG-2 (Moving Picture Experts Group) compressed digital video oflive-scan fingerprint data. The database is being distributed for use in developing and testing of fingerprint verification systems. Verification is using a person's fingerprint as a PIN/digital signature to access or validate information which is not the same application as searching for identifications against a large database of unknowns (ie. criminals).
