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 part of ISO/IEC 30106 specifies an architecture for a set of interfaces which define the OO BioAPI. Components defined in this part of ISO/IEC 30106 include a framework, Biometric Service Providers (BSPs), Biometric Function Providers (BFPs) and a component registry.
NOTE Each of these components have an equivalent component specified in ISO/IEC 19784-1 as the OO BioAPI is intended to be an OO interpretation of this part of ISO/IEC 30106.
For this reason, this part of ISO/IEC 30106 is conceptually equivalent to ISO/IEC 19784-1. Concepts present in this part of ISO/IEC 30106 (for example, BioAPI_Unit and component registry) have the same meaning as in ISO/IEC 19784-1. While the conceptual equivalence of this part of ISO/IEC 30106 will be maintained with ISO/IEC 19784-1, there are differences in the parameters passed between functions and the sequence of function calls. These differences exist to take advantage of the features provided by Object Oriented Programming Languages.
