ISO/IEC 29109-4:2010 pdf – Information technology — Conformance testing methodology for biometric data interchange formats defined in ISO/IEC 19794 — Part 4: Finger image data.
1 Scope This part of ISO/IEC 29109 specifies elements of conformance testing methodology, test assertions, and test procedures as applicable to ISO/IEC 19794-4. It establishes ⎯ test assertions of the structure of the finger image data format as specified in ISO/IEC 19794-4:2005 (Type A Level 1 as defined in ISO/IEC 29109-1:2009), ⎯ test asssertions of internal consistency by checking the types of values that may be contained within each field (Type A Level 2 as defined in ISO/IEC 29109-1:2009), ⎯ tests of semantic assertions (Type A Level 3 as defined in ISO/IEC 29109-1:2009). It does not establish ⎯ tests of conformance of CBEFF structures required by ISO/IEC 19794-4:2005, ⎯ tests of other characteristics of biometric products or other types of testing of biometric products (e.g. acceptance, performance, robustness, security), ⎯ tests of conformance of systems that do not produce ISO/IEC 19794-4:2005 records. 2 Conformance Biometric data interchange format conformance tests conform to this part of ISO/IEC 29109 if they satisfy all of the normative requirements related to Clause 6. Specifically, they shall use the test methodology specified in Clauses 6, 7 and 8 of ISO/IEC 29109-1:2009, and all Level 1 and Level 2 tests shall use the assertions defined in Table 2 of this part of ISO/IEC 29109. Implementations of ISO/IEC19794-4:2005 tested according to the methodology specified shall be able to claim conformance only to those biometric data record (BDB) requirements specified in ISO/IEC 19794-4:2005 that are tested by the test methods established by this methodology. Implementations of ISO/IEC 19794-4:2005 do not necessarily need to conform to all possible aspects of ISO/IEC 19794-4:2005, but only to those ISO/IEC 19794-4:2005 requirements that are claimed to be supported by the implementation in an implementation conformance statement (ICS), filled out in accordance with Clause 8 of ISO/IEC 29109-1:2009 and Table 1 of this part of ISO/IEC 29109.

ISO/IEC 19794-4:2005, Information technology — Biometric data interchange formats — Part 4: Finger image data ISO/IEC 29109-1:2009, Information technology — Conformance testing methodology for biometric data interchange formats defined in ISO/IEC 19794 — Part 1: Generalized conformance testing methodology 4 Terms and definitions For the purposes of this document, the terms and definitions given in ISO/IEC 29109-1 apply. 5 Symbols and abbreviated terms For the purposes of this document, the symbols and abbreviated terms given in ISO/IEC 29109-1 apply. 6 Conformance testing methodology The testing methodology specified in Clauses 6, 7 and 8 of ISO/IEC 29109-1:2009 shall apply. The content of the tables below is based on the conformance testing methodology outlined in ISO/IEC 29109-1:2009 and shall only be used in the context of that testing methodology. 6.1 Table of requirements in the base standard The normative requirements of ISO/IEC 19794-4:2005 are listed in Table 1. The supplier of the IUT can explain which optional components of the standard are supported and the testing laboratory can note the results of the test.
Notes for Level 3 requirements: The following short notes provide more details about why a specific conformance test assertion is not specified for the corresponding requirement(s): 1 Level 3 Assertion is too difficult to test No method has been defined to test the conformance of the IUT or BDIR for this mandatory requirement of the base standard. For the purposes of this international standard, this requirement is marked as Optional (O-1) until an appropriate test method is established. 2 Image quality specification If image acquisition level is 31 or 41, capture device is EBTS Appendix F certified and so conformant to all requirements in Annex A. Otherwise, the requirements in Annex A are level 3C and no test method is yet defined to test the conformance of the IUT or BDIR for these mandatory requirements. 6.2 Table of test assertions The specific test assertions required for conformance testing of ISO/IEC 19794-4:2005 Finger image format for data interchange are listed in Table 2.
