Information Technology – The BioAPI Specification

active, Most Current
Buy Now
Organization: ANSI
Publication Date: 1 January 2002
Status: active
Page Count: 120
scope:

This specification defines the Application Programming Interface and Service Provider Interface for a standard biometric technology interface. It is beyond the scope of this specification to define security requirements for biometric applications and service providers, although some related information is included by way of explanation of how the API is intended to support good security practices.

Purpose

The BioAPI is intended to provide a high-level generic biometric authentication model; one suited for any form of biometric technology.

It covers the basic functions of Enrollment, Verification, and Identification, and includes a database interface to allow a biometric service provider (BSP) to manage the Identification population for optimum performance.

It also provides primitives that allow the application to manage the capture of samples on a client, and the Enrollment, Verification, and Identification on a server.
