This document specifies:
— generic extensible data interchange formats for the representation of finger minutia data:
— a tagged binary data format based on an extensible specification in ASN.1,
— a textual data format based on an XML schema definition that is capable of holding the same information as the tagged binary format, and
— an on-card biometric comparison format based on extensible TLV encoding;
— on-card biometric comparison parameters based on extensible TLV encoding for constructing valid probe data in the on-card biometric comparison format;
— examples of data record contents;
— application-specific requirements, recommendations and best practices in determining minutiae location, direction and type; and
— conformance test assertions and conformance test procedures applicable to this document.
NOTE Whereas ISO/IEC 39794-4 covers finger, palm, toe and foot image data, this document covers only finger minutiae and is not applicable to palms, toes or feet.
