BioAPI Consortium

The BioAPI Consortium is a group of over 90 organizations whose goal is to encourage and promote the growth of biometric technology by developing an industry-wide application programming interface (API.) The consortium's API defines how a software application interacts with a biometric verification device; it is compatible with different operating systems, vendor applications, and types of biometric technologies including voice and facial recognition, iris and retina scans, signature verification, hand and earlobe geometry, and fingerprint analysis.

Version 1.1 of the BioAPI Consortium standard has been approved and published by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). It is Common Biometric Exchange File Format (CBEFF) compliant.
