ISO/IEC 19795-7:2011


Language: EN Information technology -- Biometric performance testing and reporting -- Part 7: Testing of on-card biometric comparison algorithms


Language: EN ISO/IEC 19795-7:2011 establishes a mechanism for measuring the core algorithmic capabilities of biometric comparison algorithms running on ISO/IEC 7816 integrated circuit cards. Specifically, ISO/IEC 19795-7:2011 instantiates a mechanism for on-card biometric comparison testing; standardizes procedures for the measurement of the accuracy of on-card biometric comparison implementations running on object-based, test-specific sample cards; standardizes procedures for the measurement of durations of the various operations; gives examples for matching ISO/IEC 19794-2:2005 compact card minutiae templates. The following are specifically not within the scope of ISO/IEC 19795-7:2011: procedures for securing the communications channel, including cryptographic protection of the biometric templates; procedures for protection of sample or template integrity using digital signatures; authentication of the card and reader; selection or use of transmission protocols (e.g. contactless); profiles of specific data interchange standards; procedures for evaluation of readers, including performance, conformance and interoperability; procedures for evaluation of ruggedness or durability of the card; on-card template generation (e.g. extraction of minutiae from images); template update or adaptation; formal conformance tests of ISO/IEC 7816-4 and ISO/IEC 7816-11; testing of devices not conforming to ISO/IEC 7816, including all system-on-card devices.
