Information Technology – Conformance Testing Methodology Standard for Biometric Data Interchange Format Standards–Part 4: Conformance Testing Methodology for INCITS 381-2004, Finger Image-Based Data Interchange Format
|Publication Date:||13 October 2009|
This part of ANSI INCITS 423 is concerned with conformance testing of implementations claiming conformance to the Finger Image-Based Data Interchange Format specification as per ANSI INCITS 381-2004. Further, this part of ANSI INCITS 423 is concerned with testing only of the Biometric Data Interchange Records (BDIR) requirements as defined in ANSI INCITS 381-2004. For the purposes of this part of ANSI INCITS 423, and as also described in Part 1: Generalized Conformance Testing Methodology of ANSI INCITS 423, conformance testing of the CBEFF requirements as set forth in ANSI INCITS 381-2004 is not within the scope of this part of ANSI INCITS 423.
This part of ANSI INCITS 423 is not concerned with testing of other characteristics of biometric products or other types of testing of biometric products (i.e., acceptance, performance, robustness, security). Any organization contemplating the use of test methods defined in this part of ANSI INCITS 423 should carefully consider the constraints on their applicability.
For the purposes of this part of ANSI INCITS 423, of the two types (A and B) and three levels (1, 2, and 3) of conformance testing as defined in ANSI INCITS 423.1, only Type A and Levels 1 and 2 are within the scope of this part of ANSI INCITS 423. Selected test cases and assertions that define Level 3 and Type B conformance test methods and procedures are included in this part of ANSI INCITS 423 as informative materials.
Materials identified in this part of ANSI INCITS 423 as guidelines are suggestions or options, as are all examples, notes, and footnotes.
