Abstract ISO/IEC 19795-7:2011 establishes a mechanism for measuring the core algorithmic capabilities of biometric comparison algorithms running on ISO/IEC 7816 integrated circuit cards. Specifically, ISO/IEC 19795-7:2011

  • instantiates a mechanism for on-card biometric comparison testing;

  • standardizes procedures for the measurement of the accuracy of on-card biometric comparison implementations running on object-based, test-specific sample cards;

  • standardizes procedures for the measurement of durations of the various operations;

  • gives examples for matching ISO/IEC 19794-2:2005 compact card minutiae templates.

The following are specifically not within the scope of ISO/IEC 19795-7:2011:

  • procedures for securing the communications channel, including cryptographic protection of the biometric templates;

  • procedures for protection of sample or template integrity using digital signatures;

  • authentication of the card and reader;

  • selection or use of transmission protocols (e.g. contactless);

  • profiles of specific data interchange standards;

  • procedures for evaluation of readers, including performance, conformance and interoperability;

  • procedures for evaluation of ruggedness or durability of the card;

  • on-card template generation (e.g. extraction of minutiae from images);

  • template update or adaptation;

  • formal conformance tests of ISO/IEC 7816-4 and ISO/IEC 7816-11;

  • testing of devices not conforming to ISO/IEC 7816, including all system-on-card devices.
