BS ISO/IEC 19794 Series

BS ISO/IEC 19794 series. Information technology. Biometric data interchange formats

BS ISO/IEC 19794 series. Information technology. Biometric data interchange formatsThe BS ISO/IEC 19794 standards are applicable to all identity management systems including:

  • Identity document delivery and access management systems such as border controls, corporate identity and access cards
  • Prison access/egress
  • Forensic identification - to identify casualties or suspects at the scene of a crime
  • Citizens' rights, including voting, national health, unemployment benefits, driving licences
  • Privileges associated with a particular employment category, including access to highly secure areas such as ports, airports, military establishments, company buildings, information systems
  • Access to services, including banking services, financial services, and online purchases.

BS ISO/IEC 19794 will be used in access control and identification systems such as those based on smart cards or other recognition tools.

The BS ISO/IEC 19794 series also applies to the storage of biometric identification data in corporate databases.

In the forensic community, the capture and transmission of fingerprint images has been a common choice for the exchange of fingerprint information used by Automatic Fingerprint Identification Systems (AFIS) for the identification of individuals.

However, little to no fingerprint information is being exchanged between equipment from different vendors in the biometric user verification and access community. This has been due in part to the lack of agreement between vendors on the amount and type of information to capture, the method of capture, and the information to be exchanged.
