Optimum Biometric Labs to lead new OASIS standard

January 8, 2014 - 

OASIS Open has assigned Optimum Biometric Labs to lead a new international standard for Web Services-based operational monitoring and reporting of biometric devices and services.

“We sensed the time was finally ripe to raise the awareness and equip the biometric customers with the framework and tools with which they could use a common language to set minimum quality requirements and to deploy associated monitoring and management,” the company said.

According to the company, the new work item proposal sent to and approved by OASIS is based on previously published ‘best practices.’ The new initiative aims to assist operators and system owners to know what is going on with installation resources, improve system quality and usability, prevent system or environment-related issues and to optimize site maintenance.

Reported previously, OASIS recently enhanced its popular public-key cryptography Standard, PKCS#11 for mobile and cloud applications. 

In 2012, OASIS announced a new technical committee with a particular focus on biometrics and standardization.
