Standards development within the Information Technology sector is harmonized with international standards development. Through the CSA Technical Committee on Information Technology (TCIT), Canadians serve as the SCC Mirror Committee (SMC) on ISO/IEC Joint Technical Committee 1 on Information Technology (ISO/IEC JTC1) for the Standards Council of Canada (SCC), the ISO member body for Canada and sponsor of the Canadian National Committee of the IEC. Also, as a member of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), Canada participates in the International Telegraph and Telephone Consultative Committee (ITU-T).
For brevity, this Standard will be referred to as CAN/CSA-ISO/IEC 18584 throughout.
At the time of publication, ISO/IEC 18584:2015 is available from ISO and IEC in English only. CSA Group will publish the French version when it becomes available from ISO and IEC.
This Standard was reviewed by the CSA TCIT under the jurisdiction of the CSA Strategic Steering Committee on Information Technology and deemed acceptable for use in Canada. From time to time, ISO/IEC may publish addenda, corrigenda, etc. The TCIT will review these documents for approval and publication. For a listing, refer to the Current Standards Activities page at standardsactivities.csa.ca. This Standard has been formally approved, without modification, by the Technical Committee and has been developed in compliance with Standards Council of Canada requirements for National Standards of Canada. It has been published as a National Standard of Canada by CSA Group.
This International Standard establishes
— conformance test requirements for using general framework for on-card comparison applications
— conformance test requirements for using work-sharing mechanism for on-card comparison applications, and
— conformance test requirements to check accomplishment of security policies for on-card biometric comparison that are specified in ISO/IEC 24787:2010.
This International Standard only covers the testing of APDU command and response pairs involved for the ICC that has the capability to perform on-card biometric comparison based on ISO/IEC 24787:2010.
Measuring the performance of on-card biometric comparison algorithms in terms of error rates is not within the scope of this International Standard.
