Information technology — Biometric data interchange formats — Part 9: Vascular image data (Adopted ISO/IEC 19794-9:2007, first edition, 2007-03-01)
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).
For brevity, this Standard will be referred to as CSA ISO/IEC 19794-9 throughout.
At the time of publication, ISO/IEC 19794-9:2007 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 an image interchange format for biometric person identification or verification technologies that utilize human vascular biometric images and may be used for the exchange and comparison of vascular image data. It specifies a data record interchange format for storing, recording, and transmitting vascular biometric information from one or more areas of the human body. It defines the contents, format and units of measurement for the image exchange. The format consists of mandatory and optional items, including scanning parameters, compressed or uncompressed image specifications and vendor-specific information. Information compiled and formatted in accordance with this part of ISO/IEC 19794 can be recorded on machine-readable media or may be transmitted by data communication facilities.
Vascular biometric image data that comply with this part of ISO/IEC 19794 are intended to be embedded in a CBEFF-compliant structure in the CBEFF Biometric Data Block (BDB) as specified in ISO/IEC 19785-1.
