BS ISO/IEC 24787:2018

Information technology. Identification cards. On-card biometric comparison

Status : Current, Under review   Published : October 2018



What is this standard about?

This document establishes:

  • Architectures of biometric comparison using an ICC
  • On-card biometric comparison, both in sensor-off-card systems and as part of biometric system-on-card, — work-sharing on-card biometric comparison,
  • Security policies for on-cardbiometric comparison.

Why should you use this standard?

On-card biometric comparison provides a more secure biometric verification method than one where a biometric comparison is carried outside a secure cryptographic device. Storing biometric reference data in a secure ICC means that the reference is not available at any external interface once it has been stored in the ICC, mitigating the risk of extraction and misuse by an unauthorised party
