International standards
Biometric standards specify:
  • formats for the interchange of biometric data;
  • common file formats that provide platform independence and separation of transfer syntax from content definition;
  • application program interfaces and application profiles;
  • performance metric definitions and calculations;
  • approaches to test performance; and
  • requirements for reporting the results of performance tests.

Standards enable development of integrated, scalable, and robust solutions and reduce the cost of development and maintenance of m system solutions.

Standards should be technology neutral and not favor any particular vendor or modality.
