Biometrics Data Interchange

About This Committee

The INCITS/Biometrics Data Interchange Task Group is focused on the standardization of the content, meaning and representation of the information used by the biometric data interchange formats. Its scope has expanded to include projects addressed by TGs formerly operated under Biometrics as follows:

Biometric Technical Interfaces and Profiles that covered the standardization of all necessary interfaces and interactions between biometric components and sub-systems (formerly INCITS/M1.2);

Technical Implementations of Biometric Systems that addressed biometric profile standards for interoperability and data interchange, and projects that focused on providing additional technical implementation guidance for biometric systems (formerly M1.4); and

Cross Jurisdictional and Societal Aspects of Biometric Implementations that focused on the study and standardization of technical solutions to societal aspects of biometric implementations (formerly INCITS/M1.6).

INCITS/Biometrics Data Interchange serves as the U.S. TAG to ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 37/WG 2, WG 3, WG 4, and WG 6.

Note: INCITS/Biometrics Data Interchange was formerly known as INCITS/M1.7 - Biometric Interchange and Societal Aspects until January 2022.
