Our ability to improve the accuracy and effectiveness of biometric devices deployed in mission critical environments is of paramount importance. In order to rapidly develop and deploy new testing and validation methods we must create a development environment that combines a sophisticated set of software tools with a carefully crafted database of sample biometric templates (both legitimate and imposters). This database will be generated from a broad demographic base and be accessible via a plug and play interface of both legacy and state-of-the-art biometric devices. The BLADE provides a secure and extensible environment for the advancement and development of sophisticated methods and techniques for rapidly advancing the state-of-the-art in biometric liveness testing.
