Quality-Based Score Normalisation With Device Qualitative Information for Multimodal Biometric Fusion

Free registration required

Executive Summary

As biometric technology is rolled out on a larger scale, it will be a common scenario (known as cross-device matching) to have a template acquired by one biometric device used by another during testing. This requires a biometric system to work with different acquisition devices, an issue known as device interoperability. The authors further distinguish two sub-problems, depending on whether the device identity is known or unknown. In the latter case, they show that the device information can be probabilistically inferred given quality measures (e.g., image resolution) derived from the raw biometric data. By keeping the template unchanged, cross-device matching can result in significant degradation in performance.
