The main result secured from these evaluations is an estimate of how well commercial products performed one-to-one matching for verification over a range of applications.
"For some of the datasets used in the NIST testing there is little variation in the performance of the tested algorithms. These variations are in the thousandths of a point to differentiate vendors," noted Mira LaCous, Vice President Technology and Development at BIO-key. "The DHS2 dataset, which is the most challenging of the four tested, ranks BIO-key as one of the top three providers worldwide. Also when comparing the simple average of the four datasets, for the Table 1 results where NIST sets the threshold at an FAR of .0001, BIO-key ranks again among the top three providers worldwide," she continued.
NIST conducts this ongoing public testing program for fingerprint algorithms using datasets collected by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and U.S. Department of State. The results are available for viewing at http://fingerprint.nist.gov/SDK/ under "Updated Tables an
