Information technology — Conformance testing for the biometric application programming interface (BioAPI) — Part 2: Test assertions for biometric service providers (Adopted ISO/IEC 24709-2:2007, first edition, 2007-02-15)
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).
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 24709 defines a number of test assertions written in the assertion language specified in ISO/IEC 24709-1.
This part of ISO/IEC 24709 specifies what subset of all the test assertions defined herein are to be executed for each of the five conformance subclasses of BSPs defined in ISO/IEC 19784-1 (BioAPI 2.0). It also specifies additional assertions that are to be executed depending on the optional features of BioAPI 2.0 that the implementation under test claims to support.
Test assertions specified in this part of ISO/IEC 24709 are not claimed to be exhaustive (see also ISO/IEC 24709-1:2007, Clause 6). Biometric service provider implementations that are tested according to the methodology specified in ISO/IEC 24709-1 and with the test assertions specified in this part of ISO/IEC 24709 can (only) claim conformance to those aspects of ISO/IEC 19784-1 that are covered by these test assertions.
