Information technology — Biometric data interchange formats — Part 8: Finger pattern skeletal data (Adopted ISO/IEC 19794-8:2011, second edition, 2011-12-15, including adopted amendment 1:2014)
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 CSA ISO/IEC 19794-8 throughout.
This Standard coexists with CSA ISO/IEC 19794-8:19 (adopted ISO/IEC 19794-8:2006). At the time of publication, ISO/IEC 19794-8:2011 and ISO/IEC Amendment 1:2014 are available from ISO and IEC in English only. CSA Group will publish the French versions when they become available from ISO and IEC.
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 part of ISO/IEC 19794 specifies the interchange format for the exchange of pattern-based skeletal fingerprint recognition data. The data format is generic in that it can be applied and used in a wide range of application areas where automated fingerprint recognition is involved.
This part of ISO/IEC 19794 also specifies elements of conformance testing methodology, test assertions, and test procedures as applicable to the interchange format for the exchange of pattern-based skeletal fingerprint recognition data.
This part of ISO/IEC 19794 establishes
⎯ test assertions of the structure of the finger pattern skeletal data format as specified in this part of ISO/IEC 19794 (Type A Level 1 as will be defined in ISO/IEC 19794-1:2011/Amd.2),
⎯ test asssertions of internal consistency by checking the types of values that may be contained within each field (Type A Level 2 as will be defined in ISO/IEC 19794-1:2011/Amd.2).
This part of ISO/IEC 19794 does not establish
⎯ test of conformance of CBEFF structures required by this part of ISO/IEC 19794,
⎯ test of consistency with input biometric data record (Level 3),
⎯ test of other characteristics of biometric products or other types of testing of biometric products (e.g. acceptance, performance, robustness, security),
⎯ test of conformance of systems that do not produce ISO/IEC 19794-8 records.
