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 maximise trustworthiness. FVC-onGoing is the evolution of FVC: the international Fingerprint Verification Competitions organised in 2000, 2002, 2004, and 2006.
The FVC onGoing test results, released on 15 December 2010, revealed that Suprema’s SFCore algorithm showed the lowest, 0,258%, false rate in the FMISO benchmark, topping all previously published results. The FMISO category examines the matching performance of fingerprint algorithms in ISO19794-2 templates, which is widely used as an essential requirement for the interoperability of biometric systems.
Suprema was the only company which won in the FVC for two consecutive events (2004 and 2006), and in 2008, the company’s fingerprint algorithm was ranked top in the Minutiae Interoperability Exchange (MINEX) test by the US Government’s National Institute of Standards & Technology (NIST).
