  • Max Snijder
  • CEO and Founder of the Biometric Expertise Group
  • CEO of European Biometrics Forum
  • Chairman International Biometrics Advisory
  • member of several EU working groups and expert
  • consultant to governments and industries
  • Mission
  • providing independent knowledge and experience
    with a group of dedicated professionals who have
    proven their skills in the biometric area
  • more than 30 international experts (mostly from
  • Clients
  • governments, healthcare, EU Commission, EU JRC,
    government related organisations, consultancy
    companies, industries

BioTesting Europe update
Partners EBF (coordinator) NPL (UK) Fraunhofer
IGD (D) EC-JRC IPSC (I) Co-funded by the
European Commission under PASR2006
BioTesting Europe update
  • BioTesting goal to establish European
    capabilities for testing and certification of
    biometric components and systems
  • Inventory
  • Gap Analysis
  • Business Case
  • Roadmap and Coordinated actions
  • Co-funded by European Commission under PASR2006
  • Focus on pan European implementations
  • Project fianalized February 1st 2008
  • Final reports submitted before April 19th
  • Follow up to start Q2
  • Roadmap for a European testing and certification
    network based on the independent role of testing

BioTesting results - 1
  • Independent testing with European scope will
    reduce overall costs of the development and
    deployment of biometric systems with at least 10
  • Independent testing and certification will
    improve the overall trust of biometric systems
  • According to stakeholders most relevant and
    urgent areas to be tested and certified are
  • interoperability (especially Image
  • performance (mainly failrure to enrol / false
    acceptance / rejection)
  • security (spoofing)
  • ergonomics and human aspects (enrolment and
    verification process, kiosks, etc)
  • Roadmap and coordinated activities on different
  • organization
  • business development
  • product development
  • research development
  • standaridatsion and certification
    (infrastructure) activities

BioTesting results - 2
  • Testing products services will be developed and
    provided to the market
  • Knowledge Transfer and Co-ordination
  • Test results repository
  • Co-ordinating standardisation and development of
  • Design-for-Test and Test Development consultancy
  • Auditing
  • Application profiles development and assessment
  • Methods Tools
  • Test Strategies
  • Tools for algorithm evaluation
  • Testability tool set and design methods
  • Standard test APIs
  • Conformance testing tools
  • Tools for visualisation of results and data
  • Test Data
  • Development of (synthetic) test databases
  • Development of reference data for testing

BioTesting results - 3
  • Structured along the phases of procurement and
    development of biometric systems for optimum
    support to end users
  • specification (e.g. performance needs, what do I
    need? is it feasible?)
  • testing during procurement (benchmarking,
  • acceptance testing (do we get what has been
  • performance monitoring (does the system still
    perform conform specifications after
  • Mid/Long Term Agenda
  • development of a certification/accreditation
  • study on impact analysis of wide spread use of
  • acquisition of large scale European test database
    (JRC Ispra?)
  • improving interoperability of fingerprint
    templates from different vendors (MTIT-2?)
  • (
  • development of vendor independent quality test
    tools for finger print and face images (VIS/BMS)
  • broadening partnership network
  • promote and develop pan European coorperation
  • Short Term launching customers, please call

Biometrics and eID
  • Establishing or verifying identity?
  • Wide spread use (convenience) or or only in very
    specific cases (e.g. securing root identity
  • Purpose of application function of biometrics
    related to specific purpose
  • law enforcement
  • operational (e.g. 11 match on card,
    authentication only, e.g. Privium)
  • audit trails (who did it)
  • central repository (for whom? controled by
    individual? e.g. MyFile in Belgium)
  • Value of the transaction (personal monetary)
  • Cross over between digital and physical world
    different risk models

Case study Global Trust Center
  • The Global Trust Center (GTC, hq Malmø-Sweden) is
    a non-profit, independent and international
    organisation that develops policy, standards and
    procedures to enable trust in all digital
  • The GTC provides a forum for governments,
    businesses and civil society to carry out the
    research and dialogue to develop the framework
    required for users to enjoy significantly
    enhanced trust levels in the digital world.
  • The GTC global policy places the user at the
    center of the process defining rights and
    obligations for digital interactions, which
  • empowers the user to build trust in the digital
  • builds on previous policies and initiatives in
    identity management for the user
  • manages the interaction between the digital and
    the non-digital world
  • provides a model, with supporting infrastructure,
    to incorporate consumer protection, privacy,
    security and fraud prevention for interactions.

Biometrics and the GTC
  • GTC Policy on Biometrics
  • creating initial personal identity (first
  • use for verification only
  • to disclose personal information to a third party
    (transaction partner and/or witness)
  • biometrics to be stored encrypted/protected
  • no raw images
  • to manage/access/empower personal rules
  • (Rules through a Personal Digital Trust Center
    the user decides him/her self according to what
    rules he/she would like to get into digital

Case study Biometric encryption
  • Delivering privacy and security through privacy
    enhancing biometrics is the best way to take
    advantage of the benefits of biometrics while
    minimizing the drawbacks
  • Ann Cavoukian, Ontario (Can.) Information and
    Privacy Officer
  • (download her report on
  • What is it
  • Biometric Matching in the encrypted domain (!)
  • Anonymous and revocable biometric identifiers
  • No traces of original biometric information
  • Reverse engineering impossible
  • Protected storage using state-of-the-art one-way
    crypto algorithms
  • Multiple unique identifiers from the same
  • Benefits
  • The only biometric reference is the original
  • No cross matching between different unrelated
    databases (privacy by design)
  • Multiple revocable indentities
  • Small foot print
  • Extremely fast matching

Biometric encryption
  • How does it work?

PIC (Pseudo Identity Creator)
Template Generation
  • Pseudo identity (PI)
  • Diversification code (DC)
