Advances in biometric standardisation - addressing global requirements for interoperable biometrics
by Fernando L. Podio
International Journal of Biometrics (IJBM), Vol. 5, No. 1, 2013

Abstract: Biometric standards promote the availability of multiple sources of compatible products in the marketplace. They benefit end-users as well as system developers, biometric vendors and the Information Technology industry. This paper addresses the status of published biometric standards, ongoing biometric standards development activities and short-term standards development plans. Development of biometric standards often impacts related efforts such as token-based, security and telecommunication standards development. Examples are provided. A brief discussion on the global marketplace needs for these standards (reflected in the ongoing development projects) and adoption examples are provided. The paper focuses mainly on international standards, but other biometric standards considered to have a large international impact are also addressed.
