PD ISO/IEC TR 19795-3:2007 Information technology. Biometric performance testing and reporting. Modality-specific testing

Biometrics bannerIn biometric performance testing and reporting, careful consideration should be given to the characteristic differences of each modality (fingerprint, face, iris, etc.). These differences naturally require variations within the general methodology defined in ISO/IEC 19795-1.

Since there are many modality-dependent variations, it is desirable that each modality be specified with specific testing and reporting methods. This ensures that not only specialists of biometrics but also nonspecialists can carry out reasonably accurate testing.

PD ISO/IEC TR 19795-3:2007 is intended to describe the variations in methodologies relating to these modality-dependent characteristics. It presents and defines methods for determining, given a specific biometric modality, how to develop a technical performance test.

PD ISO/IEC TR 19795-3:2007 contains:

  • Normative references 
  • Terms and definitions
  • Symbols and abbreviated terms 
  • Modality-specific test design
  • Evaluation of modality-specific influential factors
  • Test design principles on “new” modalities
