The Norwegian Biometrics Laboratory
The Biometrics Lab at the Gjøvik University College assembles faculty members and PhD students that all have common innovative techniques for biometric authentication as their joint interest.
It is more than just a physical room at the college. It is a discussion forum to brainstorm, to generate new ideas and projects and to present intermediate results. Thus it is an essential part of the Norwegian Information Security laboratory (NISlab) at the college and represents an active focus point with currently three international research projects. Further it is the intention of the lab to increase the awareness of biometrics in Norway and its potential involvement in the Norwegian legislation and to contribute to the international standardization in the field.
Our biometric research is covering various physiological and behavioral biometrics including 2D- and 3D-face recognition, fingerprint recognition, fingervein recognition, dental biometrics, ear recognition, signature recognition, gait recognition, keystroke recognition, gesture recognition and mouse dynamics.v
Furthermore we focus on privacy enhancing technologies such as biometric template protection and integration in physical and logical access control. Our group serves also as independent testing institution for biometric performance evaluations based on our in-house biometric databases.
The Biometrics lab is an active member in the European Biometrics Forum and co-organizer of the international conference BIOSIG as well as the Biometric Session of IEEE IIH-MSP.
