Part 2 of ISO/IEC 19785 establishes the unambiguous identification of biometric organizations, formats and products by defining the mechanisms and procedures to be implemented by the Biometric Identifier Registration Authority.
The ISO/IEC Council has approved the International Biometrics & Identification Association (IBIA), which maintains this site, to be the Biometric Identifier Registration Authority.
As specified by ISO/IEC 19785 Part 2, the Biometric Identifier Registration Authority assigns and registers ASN.1 object identifier components to:
- biometric organizations,
- CBEFF patrons.
These in turn assign identifiers to:
- biometric information record formats,
- biometric data block formats,
- security block formats,
- and biometric products,
These assignments provide globally unambiguous identification in the context of the CBEFF ASN.1 object identifier. The registration process is universal, assigns unique and unambiguous identifiers, and avoids changes in identifiers over time.
A summary of procedures for registration of formats, organizations, and products is provided in Registration Procedures.
