    • NATO Standardization Agreement (STANAG) for Biometrics Mr. Benji Hutchinson BTF Standards Branch BSWG – 16 December 2009
    • Overview of Brief Purpose  To provide a status update and proposed way ahead for the development of a NATO Standardization Agreement (STANAG) for biometrics in support of ISAF interoperability Summary  Background of NATO STANAG Effort  NATO Organizational Chart  JCGISR and Technical Working Group Meetings  Proposed Elements of a NATO STANAG  Way Forward  Contact Information 2
    • Background  16-18 Sep 2008: BTF Standards Branch (STB) participated in the NATO Standardization Conference, Achieving Interoperability through Standardization - first exposure to NATO standards community  May – Aug 2009: Multiple discussions and references across the DoD biometrics community about the need to initiate a STANAG for biometrics, but no real requirement  Sep 2009: BTF STB met with the Chairman of the Joint Capability Group for Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (JCGISR) to identify the proponent in NATO for biometric standardization  Oct 2009: European Command (EUCOM) distributed a call for comments to NATO to identify the most appropriate NATO forum in which to initiate a STANAG 3

    • JCGISR TWG Meetings in Romania 17-19 Nov 2009 Synopsis of Meetings  BTF STB participated in 3 technical working groups of the JCGISR in Oradea, Romania  BTF STB briefed the HUMINT TWG meeting, which included representatives from the U.S., Italy, France, U.K., Norway, and Romania Recommendation for JCGISR to Serve as NATO Forum  Human Intelligence (HUMINT) and Measurement and Signature Intelligence (MASINT) Technical Working Groups are the proposed NATO forums in which the STANAG will be jointly developed  BTF STB distributed a trip report to the BSWG from Romania on 08 Dec 2009 with greater details on the discussions that led to this recommendation 5
    • Proposed Elements of a NATO STANAG for Biometrics  U.S. DoD CONOPS for Biometrics (2006)  Biometric Transmission Specifications  DoD Electronic Biometric Transmission Specification (EBTS) – binary, ASCII, XML  Biometric Data Interchange Formats for Modalities  ANSI/NIST ITL 1-200x multipart standard – Used by Interpol, Canada, U.K.  Fingerprint/Palm  Face  Iris  National and International Testing Methodologies  Conformance Testing for Data Interchange Formats  Conformance Testing for Technical Interfaces  Quality Measurement  Performance Testing 6
    • Way Forward Near Term Actions  BTF will champion DoD entities involved with NATO to initiate a STANAG for biometrics  BTF will lead the development of a NATO STANAG for biometrics in support of ISAF interoperability  26 Jan 2010: Meeting with Chairman of JCGISR to formally initiate STANAG and finalize development timeline and plan Challenges  Requirements/resources for NATO ISAF Automated Biometric Identification System (ABIS) – Authoritative biometric source for ISAF  Ensuring enterprise vision and vendor agnostic interoperability of all biometric devices  Compressed development timeline for STANAG to be relevant and to support the ISAF mission in Afghanistan  Capture relevant ISAF data requirements – (data element caveats across member countries in Type-2)  Upgrade existing legacy systems to become STANAG conformant 7
