BS ISO/IEC 19794-4:2005

Information technology. Biometric data interchange formats. Finger image data

Status : Current   Published : July 2005



What is this standard about?

This part of the ISO/IEC 19794 standard specifies a data record interchange format for storing, recording, and transmitting the information from one or more finger or palm image areas within an ISO/IEC 19785‑1 CBEFF data structure. This can be used for the exchange and comparison of finger image data. It defines the content, format, and units of measurement for the exchange of finger image data that may be used in the verification or identification process of a subject. The information consists of a variety of mandatory and optional items, including scanning parameters, compressed or uncompressed images and vendor-specific information. This information is intended for interchange among organizations that rely on automated devices and systems for identification or verification purposes based on the information from finger image areas. Information compiled and formatted in accordance with this part of the ISO/IEC 19794 standard can be recorded on machine-readable media or may be transmitted by data communication facilities.
