    Abstract

    The methodology currently practiced in latent print examination (known as ACE-V) yields only a decision as result, namely individualization, exclusion or inconclusive. From such a decision, it is not possible to express the strength of opinion of a forensic examiner quantitatively with a scientific basis to the criminal justice system. In this paper, we propose a framework to generate a score from the matched template generated by the forensic examiner. Such a score can be viewed as a measure of confidence of a forensic examiner quantitatively, which in turn can be used in statistics-based evidence evaluation framework, for e.g, likelihood ratio. Together with the description and evaluation of new realistic forensic case driven score computation, we also exploit the developed experimental framework to understand more about matched templates in forensic fingerprint databases.
