Latest International Finger/Palm Print Test Result of Hisign

1 NIST Test
1.1   MINEXIII Test
The MINEX III evaluation is a NIST SP 800-76-2 Biometric Specifications for Personal Identity Verification (PIV) U.S. Government program compliance evaluation. It is a successor to the discontinued MINEX Ongoing program.
 
We have passed both the Generator test and the Matcher test of MINEXIII. The template generated conformed to NIST requirements. According to the result, Hisign ranks in top 6.

1.2 PFTII Test
NIST Proprietary Fingerprint Template Evaluation II (PFT II) is one-to-one verification evaluation which measures the performance of fingerprint matching algorithms by utilizing proprietary fingerprint templates. The samples dataset have been increased to 120,000 subjects compared to previous PFT evaluation. Number of experiments was also increased to 33 with different combinations of single and two fingerprints matching.
In 2017 Hisign fingerprint algorithm was submitted to NIST Proprietary Fingerprint Template Evaluation II. The algorithm's template matching accuracy was among the best participants in most of the experiments.
The test result for each vendors can be found at https://www.nist.gov/itl/iad/image-group/proprietary-fingerprint-template-evaluation-ii-pftii-results, and the data in below sheets are the summary of combined and comparison of each vendors test results.
 
1.2.1       Template Size
There is no limitation to the size of templates in the test. Therefore, template size varies significantly among the participant vendors. Theoretically, the increase in template size can pose positive effect on the accuracy, while matching time required is also extended. The algorithm submitted by Hisign is based on practice so that the template size, and hence the registration time and matching time are balanced for overall performance, especially for super large fingerprint database. Below sheet shows the average template sizes of Hisign in different databases.

2   FVC-onGoing Test
FVC-onGoing is a web-based automated evaluation system for fingerprint recognition algorithms. Tests are carried out on a set of sequestered datasets and results are reported on-line by using well known performance indicators and metrics.
The aim is to track the advances in fingerprint recognition technologies, through continuously updated independent testing and reporting of performances on given benchmarks. The algorithms are evaluated using strongly supervised approaches to maximize trustworthiness.
 
2.1  ISOMatch ISOMatch contains fingerprint matching benchmarks using a standard minutiae-based template format [ISO/IEC 19794-2 (2005)]. The test uses two data sets, a standard test set and a low quality (hard) test set. The standard test set images are of good quality fingerprint images. The quality of the low quality test is low, and there are more noise and deformation. Hisign's algorithm ranked second for low quality test (HARD mode) and seventh for standard test (STD mode) at time of this news release. (Ranking may be changed after updated date.)
 
2.2 FvMatch
FvMatch is a test of the performance of the participants’ matching algorithm on their own characteristics.
STD mode and HARD mode: ranked the first at the time of this news release. (Ranking may be changed after updated date.)
 
2.3 Palm Verification
Palm verification is a test of the performance of the participants’ matching algorithm on their own characteristics.
All benchmarks: ranked the second at the time of this news release. (Ranking may be changed after updated date.)
