Towards Repeatable, Reproducible, and Efficient Biometric Technology Evaluations

August 18, 2015
Gregory P. Fiumara, Wayne J. Salamon, Craig I. Watson
With the proliferation of biometric-based identity management solutions, biometric algorithms need to be tested now more than ever. Independent biometric technology evaluations are needed to perform this testing, but are not trivial to run, as demonstrated

Fingerprint Vendor Technology Evaluation

January 8, 2015
Craig I. Watson, Gregory P. Fiumara, Elham Tabassi, Su L. Cheng, Patricia A. Flanagan, Wayne J. Salamon
FpVTE was conducted primarily to assess the current capabilities of fingerprint matching algorithms using operational datasets containing several million subjects. There were three classes of participation that examined various finger combinations from

Biometric Specifications for Personal Identity Verification

July 11, 2013
Patrick J. Grother, Wayne J. Salamon, Ramaswamy Chandramouli
Homeland Security Presidential Directive HSPD-12, Policy for a Common Identification Standard for Federal Employees and Contractors [HSPD-12], called for new standards to be adopted governing interoperable use of identity credentials to allow physical and

IREX III - Performance of Iris Identification Algorithms

April 3, 2012
Patrick J. Grother, George W. Quinn, James R. Matey, Mei L. Ngan, Wayne J. Salamon, Gregory P. Fiumara, Craig I. Watson
Iris recognition has long been held as an accurate and fast biometric. In the first public evaluation of one-to-many iris identification technologies, this third activity in the Iris Exchange (IREX) program has measured the core algorithmic efficacy and

Iris Quality Calibration and Evaluation (IQCE): Evaluation Report

September 24, 2011
Elham Tabassi, Patrick J. Grother, Wayne J. Salamon
Iris is rapidly gaining acceptance and support as a viable biometric. Several large scale identity management applications are either using or considering iris as their secondary or primary biometric for verification. While there are several academic

IREX I: Performance of Iris Recognition Algorithms on Standard Images

October 30, 2009
Patrick J. Grother, Elham Tabassi, George W. Quinn, Wayne J. Salamon
The IREX program supports the development of interoperable iris imagery for use in high performance biometric applications. The IREX evaluation, was conducted in cooperation with the iris recognition industry to demonstrate that standardized image formats

MINEX II Performance of Fingerprint Match-on-Card Algorithms - Phase II Report

February 29, 2008
Patrick J. Grother, Wayne J. Salamon, Michael D. Indovina, Craig I. Watson
The MINEX II trial was conducted to evaluate the accuracy and speed of Match-on-Card verification algorithms. These run on ISO/IEC 7816 smart cards. They compare conformant reference and verification instances of the ISO/IEC 19794-2 COMPACT CARD

MINEX Performance and Interoperability of the INCITS 378 Fingerprint Template

March 2, 2006
Patrick Grother, R. McCabe, Craig I. Watson, Michael D. Indovina, Wayne J. Salamon, Patricia A. Flanagan, Elham Tabassi, Elaine M. Newton, Charles L. Wilson
While the interchange of fingerprint image data provides the greatest interoperability between dissimilar fingerprint recognition systems, standards exist that specify the location and formatting of processed minutiae locations data, or templates. Minutiae

A Stall Metric to Track Communication Performance

February 15, 2000
Alan Mink, Wayne J. Salamon, Michael D. Indovina
Probing the communication protocol stack in Linux PC-based clusters to investigate erratic TCP/IP performance has led to a new metric, data stream stall, which is analogous to instruction stream stall in CPUs. Data stream stalling correlates well with

Implementation of an Interactive Digital TV Java Environment

January 1, 2000
Robert D. Snelick, Wayne J. Salamon, Alan Mink
The emergence of interactive digital television (DTV) brings about a host of exciting opportunities for broadcasters, content providers, tool developers, and equipment manufacturers. Interactive DTV combines aspects of traditional television and the

Linux-Based Clusters at the National Institute of Standards and Technology

June 1, 1999
Wayne J. Salamon, Alan Mink
The Scalable Parallel Systems and Applications Group at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has been experimenting with Linux-based clusters of computers. These clusters are used for both the running of computationally intensive

Performance Measurement of Remote ATM Clusters

April 1, 1999
C Martin, Alan Mink, Wayne J. Salamon, Michael D. Indovina, M M. Courson
We investigate the configuration and performance of remote commodity computing clusters. This is the dynamic pooling of separate clusters into a single large remote cluster via existing LANs or even the Internet. We discuss the configuration and setup of

How to Configure Linux for ATM Networks

February 22, 1999
Wayne J. Salamon
This article describes how to configure a personal computer (PC) running the Linux operating system, and an ATM switch, to build an ATM network. Information is given on obtaining the ATM software for Linux, and how to configure the software and the PC to

Performance Measurement Using Low Perturbation and High Precision Hardware Assists

December 3, 1998
Alan Mink, Wayne J. Salamon, J Hollingsworth, R Arunachalam
We present the design and implementation of MultiKron PCI, a hardware performance monitor that can be plugged into any computer with a free PCI bus slot. The monitor provides a series of high-resolution timers, and the ability to monitor the utilization of
