ISO/IEC 19784-1:2006 provides a defined interface that allows a software application to communicate with (utilize the services of) one or more biometric technologies. It includes a high-level generic biometric authentication model suited to a broad range of biometrically enabled applications and to most forms of biometric technology. An architectural model is described which enables components of a biometric system to be provided by different vendors, and to interwork through fully-defined Application Programming Interfaces (APIs), corresponding Service Provider Interfaces (SPIs), and associated data structures. ISO/IEC 19784-1:2006 covers the basic biometric functions of enrollment, verification and identification, and includes a database interface to allow an application to manage the storage of biometric records. Conformance requirements are identified and informative annexes, including sample code, are provided. ISO/IEC 19784-1:2006 specifies a biometric data structure which is compatible with ISO/IEC 19785 and 19794.
