Information technology — Biometric data interchange formats — Part 10: Hand geometry silhouette data (Adopted ISO/IEC 19794-10:2007, first edition, 2007-06-01)
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).
At the time of publication, ISO/IEC 19794-10:2007 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 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 a data interchange format (a CBEFF biometric data block – BDB) that can be used for storing, recording and transmitting the information obtained from a hand silhouette.
This part of ISO/IEC 19794 defines the content, format and units of measurement for the exchange of hand silhouette data in a BDB.
Information formatted in accordance with this part of ISO/IEC 19794 can be recorded on machine-readable media or transmitted by data communication between systems.
