The 2011 edition of The National Biometrics Challenge updates the 2006 National Science and Technology Council (NSTC) report of the same name. This new report provides an overview of current challenges related to strengthening the scientific foundation of biometrics and improving identity-management system capabilities. It clarifies biometrics-related priorities for Federal agencies and provides context for non-governmental entities considering collaborations with agencies as private-sector partners. This report’s recommendations are based on analyses provided in two key National Research Council reports, a National Science Foundation workshop and two workshops organized by the NSTC Subcommittee on Biometrics and Identity Management specifically designed to gather input for this report.
