Conformance Testing Methodology for ANSI INCITS 358-2002, BioAPI Specification
|Publication Date:||1 May 2008|
This Standard specifies the concepts, framework, test methods, and criteria to be achieved to claim conformity of Biometric Service Providers to the BioAPI specification ANSI INCITS 358-2002.
This Standard defines requirements and guidelines for specifying conformance test suites and related test methods for measuring conformity of Biometric Service Provider components to the BioAPI specification, and defines procedures to be followed before, during, and after conformance testing.
This Standard addresses only the testing of conformity of the Biometric Service Providers to the BioAPI specification. It does not address the testing of any other characteristics of the Biometric products or any other types of testing of Biometric products (i.e., acceptance, performance, robustness, security, etc.)
This Standard focuses only on the critical set of functions/features of the BioAPI specification and other requirements detailed in the conformance clause of the BioAPI specification. Clause 15 includes all the BioAPI functions/features and lists the critical functions addressed by the Standard.
This Standard includes conformance requirements related to error handling to the extent that the errors are (a) generated by the BSP (not the framework), (b) explicitly listed as error returns in the function being tested, and (c) are feasible to be induced by a test application. Testing of all possible error conditions is beyond the scope of this standard.
