Information technology — Cross-jurisdictional and societal aspects of implementation of biometric technologies — Pictograms, icons and symbols for use with biometric systems — Part 1: General principles
The ISO/IEC 24779 multi-part International Standard specifies a family of icons and symbols used
in association with devices for biometric enrolment, verification and/or identification. This part of
ISO/IEC 24779 describes the approach used in specifying icons and the range of biometric technologies
for which icon and symbol development is considered. The symbols and icons are intended to show
the modality of biometrics and to advise the necessity of appropriate preparation for and behaviour
required when using the biometric systems. They are also intended to assist subjects by guiding them
as they use the biometric systems.
This multi-part International Standard focuses on both enrolment and recognition processes. Icons and
symbols used exclusively for biometric enrolment are not specified since most enrolment systems will
be supervised, and an attendant will be available to explain to biometric capture subjects what to do.
This multi-part International Standard focuses on communication with the data capture subject.
Operators could use this part of ISO/IEC 24779, but they might need additional symbols and information.
