4 M1/SC 37 Started in January 2002 – Response to 9/11 Commercial standards (formats, APIs, etc.) Emphasis on verification (as opposed to identification) for physical and logical access –Physical access to buildings –Network access control via terminals –Drivers licenses / border control
5 SC 37 Work Groups (WGs) WG 1 - Harmonized biometric vocabulary WG 2 - Biometric Technical Interfaces WG 3 - Biometric Data Interchange Formats WG 4 - Biometric Functional Architecture and Related Profiles WG 5 - Biometric Testing and Reporting WG 6 - Cross-Jurisdictional and Societal Aspects of Biometrics
6 M1.6 / WG 6 M1.6 is the US Technical Advisory Group (TAG) to WG 6 No national projects in the US to date International projects include –Two part Technical Report (TR) –Pictograms, Icons and Symbols –New Work Item on Biometrics and Identity Management Technical reports offer guidance; standards have mandatory requirements
7 WG 6 Projects Two part Technical Report (TR) on guidance (24714) –First part is general guidance for all biometrics –Second part is intended to be more specific guidance but still in early draft stage Pictograms, Icons and Symbols –Multi-part standard –US recently contributed fingerprint icons testing report
8 WG 6 Project on Fingerprint Icons Finger placement: –Index finger (right/left) –Thumbs (individual and both) –Slap (4 fingers) (right/left). Sensor Ready state Scan Start Capture Press (more or less) Wait or Hold Successful capture Unsuccessful capture Repeat or Retry Next step Completed process successfully Give-up or completed process unsuccessfully.
9 WG 6 – Icons Examples
10 Questions (1 of 2) Operations Community: –What specific usability needs do you have that you would like to see standards or best practices address? Usability Experts: –What testing is ripe for standards development? Standards Developers: –What testing needs have you identified to support standards development?
11 Questions (2 of 2) Are mechanisms in place to transfer needs and knowledge between these communities? Are usability researchers & experts willing to engage in the biometric standards development process –(ie submitting contributions, editing drafts, etc.)?
