Biometric probe/biometric query


A biometric sample or a set of biometric features introduced into the algorithm for use as a subject of comparison with a biometric control template (biometric control templates).

Note 1 to entry: The term “comparison” (in English “comparison”) is used in a biometric sense.

Note 2 to entry: The status of a subject / object in comparison can be indicated arbitrarily. In some comparisons, the biometric control template may act as the subject of comparison with another biometric control template, or the input samples may act as comparison objects. For example, when checking for duplicates during biometric registration, the biometric control template will be used as a subject for comparison with all other biometric control templates in the database.

Note 3 to entry: In the process of comparison, input biometric samples are subjects of comparison with objects stored in the database as biometric control templates.
