Biometric Standards

Biometric Standards
Many new secure ID system implementations are using both biometrics and smart cards to improve the security and privacy of an ID system.
ANSI-INCITS 358-2002
ANSI-INCITS 358-2002, BioAPI Specification – (ISO/IEC 19784-1). BioAPI is intended to provide a high-level generic biometric authentication model-one suited for any form of biometric technology.

Smart Card Standards

Primarily, smart card standards govern physical properties, communication characteristics, and application identifiers of the embedded chip and data. Almost all standards refer to the ISO 7816-1,2 & 3 as a base reference.
International Organization for Standardization (ISO)
The ISO facilitates the creation of voluntary standards through a process that is open to all parties.
