ImageWare Releases Open Source OpenM1 Library

September 22, 2010 -- The Open Biometrics Initiative is pleased to announce the addition of the OpenM1 library. OpenM1 is a programming library for the creation and management of INCITS and ISO data structures that are part of the M1 specification. OpenM1 complements the OpenEBTS library, another Open Biometrics Initiative library, which is based on the EBTS standard.

The M1 specification is a NIST-controlled standard for interchangeable biometric data definitions for both national (INCITS) and international (iSO) use.

As with all projects within the Open Biometrics Initiative, OpenM1 is entirely open source and available for download and inclusion into any biometric project.

You can download the library and documentation from SourceForge here:
