ISO/IEC 19795-4:2008 

Information technology - Biometric performance testing and reporting - Part 4: Interoperability performance testing


Do you need a multi-user copy?




ISO/IEC 19795-4:2008 prescribes methods for technology and scenario evaluations of multi-supplier biometric systems that use biometric data conforming to biometric data interchange format standards.

It specifies requirements needed to assess

  • performance available from samples formatted according to a standard interchange format (SIF),

  • performance available when samples formatted according to a SIF are exchanged,

  • performance available from samples formatted according to a SIF, relative to proprietary data formats,

  • SIF interoperability by quantifying cross-product performance relative to single-product performance,

  • performance available from multi-sample and multimodal data formatted according to one or more SIFs, and

  • performance interoperability of biometric capture devices.

In addition, ISO/IEC 19795-4:2008

  • includes procedures for establishing an interoperable set of implementations,

  • defines procedures for testing interoperability with previously established sets of implementations, and

  • gives testing procedures for the measurement of interoperable performance.

It does not

  • establish a conformance test for biometric data interchange formats, or

  • provide test procedures for online data collection.
