ccEngine ICAO SDK

Check whether your digital face image is compliant with ICAO and ISO/IEC 19794-5 standards

The International Standard ISO/IEC 19794-5 is aimed at providing a face image format for recognition applications, which enables the exchange of face image data. Typical applications are:

  • human examination of facial images
  • human verification of identity through a comparison of facial images
  • computer-automated face identification (one-to-many search)
  • computer-automated face verification (one-to-one match).

In order to enable many applications on a wide variety of devices, and to improve face recognition accuracy, ISO/IEC 19794-5 specify a data format and provides scene constraints (pose, expression etc), photographic properties (lighting, positioning, camera focus etc), as well as digital image attributes (image resolution, image size etc).
ccEngine ICAO accurately finds face and facial features (eyes, mouth, eyebrows etc.) in images with 8-bit grayscale or 24-bit RGB and automatically check photographic and geometric requirements.

ccEngine ICAO supports (as far as both reading and writing are concerned) the CBEFF Patron Formats A-C, with ISO/IEC 19785-1 and ANSI INCITS 398-2005 interchange files, and its outputs are fully compliant with the ISO/IEC 19794-5 standard.

Minimal requirements: Intel Core i3, 2 GB RAM, 200 MB disk space, operating systems Microsoft Windows 10 and Linux (Ubuntu/RHEL).
