Gjøvik University College


Gjøvik University College (GUC) was established in 1994. It is organised in five academic departments and offers studies within health and social work, health technology, engineering, computer science and media technology. The information security group at GUC is the Norwegian Information Security laboratory, (NISlab), which was established in 2001. Five out of 26 NISlab staff members focus their research on Biometrics. NISlab conducts international competitive research in several areas of information security, supervises PhD research projects in this field and teaches courses in information security at the master and bachelor level.

Contribution to TURBINE

Technology testing is conducted by GUC, as an academic institution and being completely independent of the manufacturers. A fundamental aspect of the evaluation process is to achieve compliance with the procedures that were defined for biometric performance testing in ISO/IEC JTC1 SC37/WG5. This is ensured as NISlab core staff members have participated in this standardization process. For the testing activities GUC has started an acquisition campaign to collect data that are completely under the control of the evaluator. GUC will participate to the research on Template Protection and project results will be contributed to the relevant ISO/IEC JTC1 sub-committee by GUC on behalf of the TURBINE consortium.
