CTA and CTSs for Biometric Data Interchange Format Standards Developed by INCITS M1

September 2011

The Conformance Test Architecture (CTA) and Conformance Test Suites (CTSs) for Biometric Data Interchange Format Standards Developed by INCITS M1 were developed prior to the development of BioCTS, and therefore runs on an different architecture called "CTA Beta 2.0". CTA Beta 2.0 supports CTSs for testing implementations of biometric data interchange data formats and the three components of Biometric Information Records (BIRs) conforming to Common Biometric Exchange Framework Format standards. CTA Beta 2.0 incorporates features designed to improve the confidence and reliability of test results and the usability of the test tools.
