ONVIF® announced that its Export File Format, the ONVIF specification for the export of video from security surveillance recording platforms, is the new standard recommended by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) for the exporting and playback of video surveillance recordings. In a research project commissioned by the FBI to aid law enforcement in forensic investigations, NIST worked in conjunction with ONVIF to adopt the Export File Format to serve as the FBI’s new minimum interoperability requirements.
Vision-Box has submitted their facial recognition algorithm to tests by the US National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), outperforming other top competitors. NIST provides an independent assessment of facial recognition technology for industry, governments and law enforcement agencies across the globe. The latest benchmark covering 109 algorithms from over 63 providers has ranked Vision-Box´s algorithm within the top 15.

ALTR emerged from nearly four years of stealth to release the first commercial software package that unleashes the security benefits of blockchain. The new ALTR platform is built on ALTRchain, the only high-performance, enterprise-grade blockchain technology for ultra-secure data access and storage. Virtually impenetrable to attack, the ALTR platform is a data-security solution for organizations to monitor, access and store critical information. Moving beyond failed and outmoded perimeter systems, ALTR’s approach signals a fundamental new paradigm in cybersecurity.
NTT Security is discussing the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s (NIST) updated Framework for Improving Critical Infrastructure Cybersecurity and the ISO framework to help security professionals gain a better grasp on how to harmonize frameworks and manage risk. The company’s firsthand knowledge of the new NIST framework emanates from Shinichi Yokohama, Head of Cyber Security Integration at NTT Corporation, who played a significant role in making recommendations for the new proposed guidelines.
Viakoo is showcasing the dynamic capabilities of their solution to help ensure consistent compliance across industries for physical security At ISC West 2018 (Booth #33087). Working in conjunction with Coalfire, a leading cyber risk management and compliance firm, the Viakoo Predictive product was found to fully or partially automate the audit process for 38 specific physical security controls. Using automated discovery and push-button reporting from Viakoo can save significant time during an audit, and avoid expensive penalties for failing an audit.
Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe declared Thursday that Virginia is the first state to adopt the National Initiative for Cyber Security Education (NICE) Framework, developed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology, in an official capacity. The latest version of the framework —also known as NIST Special Publication 800-181— was published earlier this month with the intention of providing a “common, constant lexicon” for a fast-growing industry in which everyone seems to have a different name for the same thing.
The US National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is to conduct new tests that will assess the capability of face recognition algorithms to correctly identify or ignore people appearing in video sequences. The tests —Face in Video Evaluation (FIVE)— will assess both comparative and absolute accuracy measures. The goals are to determine which algorithms […]
NEC Corporation (NEC) along with NEC Corporation of America (NECAM), one of the providers and integrators of advanced IT, communications, managed services, and biometric solutions, announced that NEC’s face recognition technology achieved the highest performance evaluation in the recent Face Recognition Vendor Test (FRVT) 2014 performed by the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology […]
Who is that stranger in your social media photo? A click on the face reveals the name in seconds, almost as soon as you identified your best friend. While that handy app is not quite ready for your smart phone, researchers are trying to develop reliable methods to match one person’s photo from millions of […]
MorphoTrak, a Morpho (Safran) company based in the U.S., has partnered with Identity One as integrator to deliver a seamless biometric access and time and attendance system to a large North American freight railroad network company. With the new integrated system, this company now enjoys improved security, as well as streamlined human resource and access […]
Cognitec has announced that its facial recognition algorithm fared well in a recent NIST face recognition vendor test. Specifically, says the company quoting the NIST test results, Cognitec’s algorithm excelled particularly in tests with youth and senior age groups, “leading the next most accurate algorithm in 5-year accuracy by 30% and 16% respectively.” The NIST […]
facialrecognition2 November 8, 2013 – A new study published in the journal of Psychological Science by researchers at the University of Texas at Dallas and the National Institute of Standards and Technologies could turn our understanding of facial recognition on its head. The research describes a series of experiments that demonstrates there is potentially more information for biometrics-based identity recognition in images of people than the face alone. Specifically, the recognition study used three types of images for comparison: a subject’s face and upper body (left); only the face (center); and the upper body with the face masked (right). Results suggest that automatic recognition systems could be improved by adding body information beyond the face. “For twenty years, the assumption in the automatic face recognition community has been that all important identity information is in the face,” Jonathon Phillips, an electronics engineer at NIST who is a co-author on the study said. “These results should point us toward exploring new ways to improve automatic recognition systems by incorporating information about the body beyond the face.” In a series of experiments, the researchers showed study participants pairs of images of either the same or different people and asked them to determine if the photos matched or not. The images selected for the study were chosen from a database used in the NIST Face Recognition Vendor Test 2006 , an international competition of face recognition systems conducted by NIST. The study team selected a subset of the image pairs that automated face […]
