Fingerprint Sample Quality Workshop
With the assessment of fingerprint images, the community created now a standardized biometric qualifier for plain impressions captured using optical sensors (i.e. Total Internal Reflection – TIR) and inked fingerprint images, called NFIQ2. Over the last two years NFIQ2.1 has evolved as OpenSource in GitHub and is now available for many different platforms. NIST has verified quality feature stability over various operating systems with more than 2 million fingerprints. Further a new command line interface is provided. In addition, a new compliance test was developed representing quality scores in the range of 0 to 100. The NFIQ2.0 NIST Interagency Report (IR) will be published soon.
But NFIQ2 is not just an OpenSource algorithm, rather it also implements a common approach to implement biometric sample quality assessment for further sensor types.
We are proud to announce that the European Association for Biometrics (EAB) together with the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), European Union Agency for the Operational Management of Large-Scale IT Systems in the Area of Freedom, Security and Justice (eu-LISA),the ISO/IEC JTC1 SC37 working group 3, and Hochschule Darmstadt is about to update for the latest development on NFIQ2.1 and to organise a workshop on June 15 and June 16, 2021.show all events
