They were certified by US Government National Institute of Standards Technology (NIST) in the Minutiae Interoperability Exchange Test (MINEX). Please check http://www.nist.gov/itl/iad/ig/ominex_qpl.cfm
Fingerprint Minutiae Interoperability is necessary for large scale government and public personal verification programs. In these programs, there is a central database that keeps millions of personal fingerprint minutiae templates in one of the standard formats mentioned above. At the time of personal verification, fingerprint is captured somewhere. The minutiae template of the same standard format is generated and then sent to the central database for verification. Interoperability enables the template generation can be done by using any compliant template extractor. This ensures h/w and s/w from various providers can work under ONE system and such flexibility is very important to large scale nationwide programs.
