Abstract
(EN)

Various arrangements for use of biometric data are detailed. For example, a police officer may capture image data from a driver license (e.g., by using a camera cell phone). Facial recognition vectors are derived from the captured image data corresponding to photo on the license, and compared against a watch list. In another arrangement, a watch list of facial image data is compiled from a number of government and private sources. This consolidated database is then made available as a resource against which facial information from various sources can be checked. In still another arrangement, entities that issue photo ID credentials check each newly-captured facial portrait against a consolidated watch list database, to identify persons of interest. In yet another arrangement, existing catalogs of facial images that are maintained by such entities are checked for possible matches between cataloged faces, and faces in the consolidated watch list database.
