Today, Information technology (IT) plays a vital role in the field of textile industry. DHS requested establishment of the Biometrics Laboratory Accreditation Program (Biometrics LAP) by NIST’s NVLAP to accredit laboratories that perform conformance testing, interoperability testing, technology testing, scenario testing, and operational and usability testing for biometrics products (systems and subsystems) as defined in nationally and internationally recognized biometrics products testing standards.
The Information Technology (IT) Department provides reliable, up to date, effective, secure and integrated technology solutions and information services to empower students, faculty and staff to meet their goals in support of the mission of the university.
As a world-class measurement and testing laboratory encompassing a wide range of areas of computer science, mathematics, statistics, and systems engineering, ITL’s research program supports NIST’s mission to promote U.S. innovation and industrial competitiveness by advancing measurement science, standards, and related technology.
Recognizing the importance of both security and privacy safeguards for systems, organizations and individuals, NIST recently initiated several groundbreaking projects to bring these concepts closer togetherâ€”to facilitate the development of stronger, more robust security and privacy programs and provide a unified approach for protecting all types of information, including personal information.
NISTIR 7504 (June 2008) Usability Testing of Height and Angles of Ten-Print Fingerprint Captureâ€â€”this study, supported by DHS, was performed in preparation for the 10-print fingerprint capture pilot testing phase of the process through which DHS and the OBIM program transitioned from a two-print fingerprint capture process to a 10-print slap capture process.
