Abstract 

ISO/IEC 29109-5:2014 specifies elements of conformance testing methodology, test assertions, and test procedures as applicable to two-dimensional face images defined in the ISO/IEC 19794-5:2005 biometric data interchange format standard for face image data.

ISO/IEC 29109-5:2014 establishes

  • test assertions of the structure of the face image data format as specified in ISO/IEC 19794-5:2005 (Type A Level 1 as defined in ISO/IEC 29109-1:2009),
  • test assertions of internal consistency by checking the types of values that may be contained within each field (Type A Level 2 as defined in ISO/IEC 29109-1:2009).

ISO/IEC 29109-5:2014 does not establish

  • tests of conformance of 3D face records defined in ISO/IEC 19794-5:2005/Amd.2,
  • tests of conformance of CBEFF structures required by ISO/IEC 19794-5:2005,
  • tests of consistency with the input biometric data record (Level 3),
  • tests of conformance of the image data to the quality-related specifications of ISO/IEC 19794-5:2005,
  • tests of conformance of the image data blocks to the respective JPEG or JPEG 2000 standards,
  • tests of other characteristics of biometric products or other types of testing of biometric products (e.g. acceptance, performance, robustness, security).
