    1 credit course
    Repeatable 3 times
    Follows work in INCITS M1 and ISO/IEC JTC 1 SC37
    Provides opportunities for students to provide technical comments
    Closely linked to biometric standards work
  • 6. IT 55500 Biometric Technology Test Design, Performance, and Evaluation
    An introduction of methods of designing biometric testing, performance, and evaluation analyses.
    Methods of evaluating fingerprint, face, iris, and voice recognition data is explored using ROC curves, CMC, Rank statistics, and DET curves.
    Examines testing requirements from submission of IRB documents to the final analysis.
    Includes a component of comparative analysis within modalities.
  • 7. IT 54000 Biometric Performance and Usability Analysis
    An introduction of test methodologies from disciplines outside of biometrics, which include: 
    human factors,
    human-computer interaction,
    Demonstrate how biometric data analysis can benefit from understanding how humans interact with biometric sensors during the testing and evaluation of biometric systems.
    Explores test methods, case studies, and prior biometric testing reports in order to develop a test methodology that includes information on how users interact with biometric systems.
  • 8. IT 65700 Fingerprint Performance and Usability
    Covers topics of fingerprint capture, fingerprint feature extraction, fingerprint matching, and attacks on fingerprint systems.
    Requires analysis of real fingerprint data and the integration of fingerprint recognition in existing infrastructures.
    Development of a fingerprint recognition system is required.
  • 9. IT 65800 Biometric Systems Interoperability: Applications and Challenges
    Provides a technology neutral approach to the discussion of biometric system interoperability.
    Examines the issues of biometric sub-systems of different biometric modalities and sub-systems of the general biometric model.
    Students will be able to critically evaluate the impact of interoperability of sub-systems on the performance of the entire system.
  • 10. IT 54500 Biometric Technology and Applications
    Foundation course
