Biometric Services International, a wholly owned subsidiary of the National Biometric Security Project, announced the availability of its latest review of biometric standards activity, “Summary of Published and Emerging Biometrics Standards.”
Progress in biometrics standardization since the last report, issued in June 2007, has been significant with twelve new standards published bringing the total number of published standards to sixty-four (64). The report details these, along with an additional 70 emerging standards currently under consideration.
Face Recognition Standard amendments add support for 3D range images and specify how to take photographs for optimal face recognition performance. New standards addressing biometric fusion (integration of multiple biometrics) support BioAPI biometric fusion initiatives while a new Technical Report on biometric fusion identifies potential standards requirements in this area.
