Projects / BioAPI


The BioAPI Specification is intended to provide a high-level generic biometric authentication model, one suited for any form of biometric technology. It covers the basic functions of Enrollment, Verification, and Identification, and includes a database interface to allow a biometric service provider (BSP) to manage the Identification population for optimum performance. It also provides primitives that allow the application to manage the capture of samples on a client, and the Enrollment, Verification, and Identification on a server. This is the reference implementation of the standard.
